    I worked at First Book

    Pros

    Exceptional mission and dedication to providing books to children from low-income families around the country. Flexible work environment, passionate leadership dedicated to providing resources to the hardest to reach children.

    Cons

    Fairly flat hierarchical structure, although that does provide some flexibility in work environment. Fast paced environment, often long hours to complete the tasks at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide growth opportunities for upcoming and young professionals. Providing insight from senior leadership to lower level staff members is encouraging.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at First Book in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I found out about the internship through campus recruitment. I was immediately interested and followed up with them and got an interview right away. The process was normal. Expect the typical work experience and resume questions. Very straight forward.

    There was no negotiation for this internship. This was strictly for school credit.
