    I worked at Cato Institute (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Terrific jobs program, that teaches students/workers plenty about the tenets of libertarianism.

    Cons

    At times, it feels like the work schedule is TOO BIG and you as an intern don't have enough time to work for the scholar you've been assigned to.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cato Institute in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews, initially with the Director of Human Resources then about a week later with the CFO. The interview with the Director of Human Resources was straight forward, assessing my skills while the interview with the CFO was very conversational, her talking about the recent changes in the organization, the needs and challenges surrounding the position and not really touching on my skills and what I could offer the organization at all. She did most of the talking. We spoke for over a half hour with her ending with she'd be contacting candidates for an in-person interview with the CAO at a date that fell approx two weeks in the future. I was never contacted.
