    I worked at Kiva as an intern (less than a year)


    The Kiva internship opportunity is the definition of unique, non-traditional and rewarding. Your work and performance will be highly praised throughout your 5 month period. In my experience, I found there was no hierarchy of positions within my department, but rather a sense of equality, cooperation and engagement. As an intern, I had the space to pitch my own ideas and share my opinion in certain areas. Kiva gives interns the opportunity to spend the day in other departments to get a sense of how the organization is run and organized. The internship also gives individuals an inside perspective into the microfinance world and how social impact is leveraged on a local and global scale. Might I also mention that Kiva is a work hard, play hard organization dedicated to their mission to alleviate poverty and push the boundaries of the social impact sphere. The individuals you find at this organization are passionate, driven, talented, and fun loving. You immediately build relationships here because everyone is deeply involved and interested in fostering an innovative and fun culture!


    -The internships are unpaid
    -Most internships don't turn into a full time position unless you're there at the right time and a position opens up in your department

    Interview Details

    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 applying
