I have been working at Kiva as an intern (less than a year)Pros
This is not a traditional internship! As a nonprofit Kiva relies heavily on its volunteer staff, thus interns are treated like full-time employees. This means you have the autonomy to pitch ideas, oversee projects, and share your vision with the Kiva board of directors!
The internship provides an amazing opportunity to lean the ins and outs of microfinance, social entrepreneurship, and the nonprofit sphere.
The employees are awesome, the office is fun, and there are always one or two dogs hanging around.Cons
It is highly unlikely that this internship will turn into a full-time position. That being said, Kivans do want to see you score the job of your dreams and go out of their way to faciltiate professional connections.RecommendsPositive Outlook

Pretty easy hiring process: After sending in your application you may receive an initially phone interview which was very casual, more about sorting you into a position than evaluating you. Second interview went over resume details, and relevant skills for the position. I got an offer within a week. The entire process was very smooth and very professionally. I highly recommend applyingInterview Questions
