The qualified applicant should respect knowledge yet have humility for the role of the expert in the policymaking process. Truth and what is best for America must be foundational motivations.

The qualified applicant will likely have experience managing sophisticated programs and/or projects as well as an interest and capacity for research. Entrepreneurialism, relationship building, and strategic thinking are all necessary traits. The combination of vision and attention to detail is prized, as is the ability to execute with measures of dependability and improvisation. Subject-matter familiarity with legislative processes or economic modeling would also be beneficial.
