    I worked at Center for American Progress

    Pros

    It has a very flexible, positive and support work environment for interns. There may be variations based on who your supervisor is but you can to do a lot as an intern and generally there is a lot of activities to immerse yourself in DC and policy world.

    Cons

    The job could be intense considering they pay next to nothing to interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paid internship would be great.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Center for American Progress.

    Interview Details

    Very easy and basic application. Got a phone interview within 3-6 weeks of submitting my app. The phone interview was with the special assistant of the specific team you're applying to. Simple questions like "What are you most passionate about" and "What experience do you have in X, Y, Z." Lasted no longer than 30 min. Heard back 1-2 weeks afterwards. They definitely call your references.
