    Pros

    Committee Study topics and panels

    Lectures series are hot curent events/topics

    Cons

    fear-based company
    Information is hoarded
    unclear goals; looking good cuts quality
    Endless rules prevent staffers from doing so much as ordering a stapler without permission
    management creates distrust and confusion among staff

    Advice to Management

    A good agency uses open communication, not fear & intimidation to get results / create positive work environment
    As a publications company, supply tools/ materials and equipment that will fit the real daily needs of staff / committee

    Interview

    It can be a long process. First you should go to their web site and find a "sponsor." There will be research descriptions for available sponsors. DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST. Pick one that will be a good mutally fit. The work should sound interesting to you and your skills should align with thier goals. Next, contact the sponsor and if they have mutual interest you put together a proposal. The proposal is then graded and if you get a high enough score you are selected.

    Interview Questions

    • The proposal review is a blind review. It is hard to predict what will get a good or bad score, but be sure that everything is in the proper format.   Answer Question
