Research Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at US National Archives and Records Administration in March 2009.
Interview Details – I originally applied via my school's career center but decided to contact the recruiter directly. After 10 minutes on the phone with her, she offered me the internship. I guess many students didn't apply, given the internship was offered to me, without much effort on my part. Most of the employees I met with during a informational interview seemed boring & were responsible for documenting numerous gov't documents. Although I talked to a few who did their own research on the side. The atmosphere seemed dulled and dead, I ultimately decided to reject the offer.
