I worked at Center for American Progress full-time (Less than a year)
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.
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!
I applied online. I interviewed at Center for American Progress.
Went to DC for an in-person interview, standard questions--why CAP, why this interest group, what is your work style. Followed up with a difficult 2 hour writing/editing test. Was then asked to complete an application and provide references
