What Do Lobbyists Do?

Lobbyists are specialty professionals who are paid to influence policy-makers. Lobbying occurs at all government levels including local, state and federal. Lobbyists represent the special interests of trade associations or other clients in the decision-making process in both the legislative and executive branches. Currently there are more than 11,000 lobbyists at the federal level. Read more about Neil Dhillon's time spent as a lobbyist: http://neildhillon.blogspot.com/
