I worked at Center for Strategic and International Studies full-time
Great academic environment to pursue thoughtful policy research
Only does work relating to national security
I applied online. I interviewed at Center for Strategic and International Studies.
I applied online and two weeks later received an email asking me to do a phone interview the next day. The first interview was with two employees and lasted 30 minutes. They asked me mostly about my resume and my interest in the specifics of the position. There were a couple difficult questions where they asked me about what they saw as gaps in my experience. The next day, I was asked to do a second phone interview with the program director. That interview lasted 20 minutes and was easier and more conversational. I was then asked to do a short timed writing assignment. Three days after submitting that, I received my offer.
A good portion of the interview time was allotted to me asking questions, so have a long list of good followup questions.
