    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Children's Defense Fund (Oakland, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I emailed them in May and submitted my resume. I received and email a couple of weeks later but had to turn it down because I already had an intern for the summer. After I finished my summer internship I sent them another email letting them know I was available for Spring. I went in for the interview in November and was asked basic interview questions. A couple of days later I received an email stating I got the internship.
