The process took a day - interviewed at Council on Foreign Relations in December 2008.

Interview Details – I learned about the organization through articles I read for my political science classes. I applied for the internship through the website and wrote a cover letter for it. There was one in-person interview with HR and the respective department. The questions were very general - why are you interested in the position? What relevant experience do you have? Where do you see yourself after college?
