    I worked at Council on Foreign Relations (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, access to CFR meetings and events, very nice employees, awesome HR department, lots of independent projects, and I never had to stay late. CFR is a great place to intern! Would definitely recommend.

    Cons

    The only real con of this internship is that it was unpaid. While at CFR, I worked independently a lot of the time - which I do not mind at all! However, if you do not like to work on your own then I am not sure I would recommend this internship.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Council on Foreign Relations in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was very friendly. They contacted me through phone to ask me for an interview and then we had a Skype interview. I first had a ten minutes long behavioral interview with the HR and then thirty minutes long interview with a research assistant. The research assistant asked me very specific questions about the area I want to do my internship about.
