Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Interview Details

Applied online for a semester-long internship in one of the specific programs. Received an invitation to interview a month later. Went into the office for an interview (though was offered the option for an interview over the phone). Interview was approximately 45 minutes long. Mostly questions about why I was interested in the position, what experiences on my resume (or others) contributed to that interest. Asked about work style. Asked about what projects I would be interested in working on and why. Asked some topic-related questions that definitely required specific knowledge to answer. Received offer via email a week and a half after my interview and was given 5 days to accept or decline.

Interview Questions
  • Most unexpected question was about what I like to do outside the office (for fun, hobbies, etc.)   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
I tried to negotiate for more time to accept the offer, as I was balancing other interviews/positions, but could not get a significant amount of more time.

    I interviewed through an employee referral - interviewed at Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for a phone interview after a friend forwarded along my resume. They asked a lot of straightforward questions about my experience and what I gained from them. They also asked some behavioral questions like 'how do you deal with high pressure situations and a lot of things being thrown at you?'
