    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NPR.

    Interview Details

    Applied through official website. Hiring manager seemed to already make a decision before calling. Just confirmed with me about some details. This is the most pleasant interview process. TIPS: Polish your resume to make it stand out because the competition for intern positions at NPR are extremely competitive(1% No kidding). They hire interns all 3 semesters-fall/summer/winter.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. The pay is really low but enough to cover your expenses in DC.
