    Pros

    This is a great opportunity to make a measurable difference on really important issues. You're given a lot of responsibility for entry-level positions, the training program is extensive, and it connects you with a network of organizations and potential career opportunities. You'll also get to work with some really amazing, fun, dedicated people.

    Cons

    It's definitely challenging, and the hours can be intense. It's no worse (and in some cases better) than you're going to find in political and activist work elsewhere, but that's just not the right fit for some people. Definitely go in with your eyes open about the commitment you're making.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Fund for the Public Interest.

    Interview

    Hiring is quick. They'll always hire you even if you're bad. Don't expect to keep the job though- after a week you'll lose it if you don't make quota. So it's iffy. Goodluck!
