    Positive Outlook

    I worked at World Affairs Council of Atlanta as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    WAC puts on wonderful programs, as an intern you're able to connect with an amazing network of professionals and partake in incredible events. They have flexible scheduling and an opportunity to get college credit. This is a wonderful place for a first internship while in school.
    The building is very close to MARTA for an easy commute in w/o traffic

    Cons

    The internship are unpaid and students must pay for parking in the building if they choose to drive. Unfortunately since they have a small (arguably underpaid and overworked) full-time staff there isn't much time for them to meaningfully train/develop the interns and it is extremely unlikely to get a fulltime position at WAC from the internship. We were mostly given menial tasks with little

    Advice to Management

    Invest in developing the intern's skills and give them more structure. Include parking for unpaid employees especially. Create a direct opportunity for interns to connect with potential employers at the end of the semester. It will incentivize them and help them feel valued.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at World Affairs Council of Atlanta (Atlanta, GA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted application online and was contacted by email to set up an interview. Panel interview lasted about 45 minutes and consisted of all of the top management. They are very nice people, as one would expect at a non profit organization. I was offered and accepted the semester long internship.
