    I worked at Center for American Progress full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I LOVE CAP. Lots of opportunity as an intern to interact with senior level management and researchers, and lots of great work on some great issues.

    Cons

    Not sure that I would want a full-time job here. Special assistant is the only full-time entry-level position in research and not sure that I want that much administrative work.

    Advice to Management

    None. I loved working at CAP!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Center for American Progress.

    Interview

    A few days after I applied through an employee referral, I was contacted to set up a phone interview. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and included standard questions about me, my work style, and my experience. Less than a week later I was contacted for a writing test, and heard back two weeks after that with an update that I didn't get the job. The employee I spoke with was extremely friendly, courteous and professional throughout the process.
