    I have been working at Center for Strategic and International Studies as an intern for less than a year


    Have a lot of chances to meet important people. Good environment. Work/Life balance. Everyone is very friendly. Learn a lot and have many chances to talk to different program and department.


    It is not a perfect place for long-term career development. There is a high turnover rate. Every week I can receive farewell emails. A lot of employees choose to go to another organization or company or seek for a high degree.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a semester-long internship in one of the specific programs. Received an invitation to interview a month later. Went into the office for an interview (though was offered the option for an interview over the phone). Interview was approximately 45 minutes long. Mostly questions about why I was interested in the position, what experiences on my resume (or others) contributed to that interest. Asked about work style. Asked about what projects I would be interested in working on and why. Asked some topic-related questions that definitely required specific knowledge to answer. Received offer via email a week and a half after my interview and was given 5 days to accept or decline.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected question was about what I like to do outside the office (for fun, hobbies, etc.)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I tried to negotiate for more time to accept the offer, as I was balancing other interviews/positions, but could not get a significant amount of more time.
