    I worked at Root Cause as an intern for less than a year


    - Everybody is very invested in their work and it makes them great to work with
    - People are helpful and want you to learn (offer workshops in networking, software and resume review for the fellows
    - Make great connections
    - Fun events


    - Pay is a little low but then again, it is a nonprofit
    - Not really a con, but you will not always be spoon-fed instructions so be prepared to work independently
    - Be detail oriented and creative

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Root Cause in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for the full-year internship position at Root Cause's Social Innovation Forum. The process was relatively quick and took only a couple weeks. They were also very flexible in waiting for my response and willing to work with my schedule.

    I was contacted via email by the SIF coordinator, we scheduled a time to interview, conducted the interview, and then I received an email congratulating me on my offer.

    Interview Questions
    • There were quite a few behavioral questions, which I wasn't prepared for since I thought they would be asked in a second round.   Answer Question
