    I worked at Ashoka (Less than a year)


    Great Company for young people to work as an Intern. Good exposure.


    Ashoka seems only offers unpaid internship.

    Advice to Management

    I advise to start paying interns. This will help intern to further increase their involvement.

    Very casual; first Skype interview and hour and a half in person interview in Arlington office. The skype interview takes about 20 minutes and is often performed by another intern at Ashoka, so it's easy to be at ease during the whole process. The interview in Arlington is with someone more senior, but it's also lead in a very natural and casual way; as a normal conversation would go.
