    Pros

    The people here are so nice and supportive. Although I was not able to stay for very long as an intern, I am still in touch for dozens of people from ASCOA. I can't think of any other internship where I made those kind of deep connections. Plus, they pay their interns.

    Cons

    Like at many non-profits, there is not a lot of room always for advancement. A job is by no means guaranteed after an internship - only if a position happens to open up while you were there.

    Advice to Management

    Because most of the interns are post-college, perhaps have a more guided system to help them find employment after the internship.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Americas Society/Council of the Americas (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had an informal interview with a departmental director, who invited me to work for a week. This would be a trial for both of us, and I would be paid hourly for my time. Work was very simple and my tech skills (which to me are sharp) were seen as semi-god like (they're not too savvy in general). Got employed the very next day.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no difficulty as it was very informal and the person interviewing is not a talent acquisition pro (nobody there is a talent acquisition pro, by the way---keep that in mind. That's probably why so many people are not very good at their job----upper management likes them, so....)   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was an hourly pay and non-negotiable due to budget constraints.
