I worked at Human Rights Campaign as an intern (less than an year)Pros
The people are intelligent, personable and passionate about the issues. Interns are made to feel like they're really important to the work that gets done in the organization from the onset. Even while it is unpaid, there are so many opportunities and doors that are opened to you that it really makes up for it in some ways!Cons
Unpaid internship, which made finding cost-effective living arrangements difficult, and led other interns to pursue jobs after the internship was over for the day in order to fund their summer expenses.
Some interns were set to one singular task over the course of the entire internship, while others were given a wide breadth of work--sometimes interns would be without work to do, while another intern would have an intensive project they'd be tasked with.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Pay your interns! There are so many worthwhile progressive organizations in D.C. that to remain competitive in getting the best interns, there needs to be compensation for them all.Recommends

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Human Rights Campaign in August 2013.Interview Details
The application and interview process seemed disorganized. Right out of the gate, while the company has its applicants send their initial application online, upon being invited for an interview, applicants are asked to complete and submit a paper application that covers the same information as the online application, which seemed like a waste of time. After all, if the online application system works as expected, there should be no reason to do the application twice.
The interview itself was two stages, and it lasted an hour. The first stage was with a person from human resources, who asked more generalized personality and experience-related questions. The second stage was with the hiring manager for the position and a person who would work closely with the position being hired. A number of questions overlapped between HR and the hiring manager. At the end of the interview, the hiring manager indicated that they would be in contact before a certain date.
After waiting out the period that the hiring manager had specified, I called the HR person back. No response. When I called the hiring manager, I was told that they needed another week. After that week, calls to both the HR person and the hiring manager went unanswered, and messages left were not returned. Following another week, I received a response from the automated application system that indicated that I was no longer being considered for the position.Interview Questions

- Honestly, I don't remember. The thing that stood out most in this process was the disorganization of the whole thing. Answer Question
