I worked at Center for Strategic and International Studies full-time (Less than a year)
High level government and military officials appear regularly to give talks.
CSIS provides career betterment seminars for junior and intern level staff.
Easy to get to know senior advisers on a personal level.
Pay is tough to live on in the D.C. area.
Advice to Management
Fairly simple and straightforward. The interviewer asked a few general questions about my background and plans for the future. The interviewer elaborated on the position and organization; and was very responsive to the questions I asked. The internship opportunities sound competitive; although my expertise is not in International Studies, the interviewer informed me that they host several general professional development workshops and networking events.
