    Pros

    Great experience, very professional work environment. Getting to write my own articles that were published on the CFR blog was both a great learning experience, and very useful as a source for published writing samples in applying for later jobs.

    Cons

    The unpaid internship racket, especially in a pricey city like New York, is never fun. The work was substantive, and deserved at least a stipend.

    Advice to Management

    I had a great internship experience overall. The only advice would be, if there is any way to have a stipend, that would be very helpful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Council on Foreign Relations (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process started with a couple of skype interviews (with HR, the person currently in the position, and the hiring supervisor), followed by a test of basic skills (editing, writing, drawing up a budget) and a test of translation ability. Finally, there were in-person interviews with the hiring supervisor, an administrator and other people in the department.
