Foundation for Defense of Democracies

Research Intern

June - August 2020 • Washington, DC

What I liked

I liked that I was given meaningful work and trusted with the task of managing my own workload. I also appreciated that the organization put in the time and effort to help its interns with their professional development through seminars with high-ranking analysts and other networking opportunities.

What I wish was different

I wish it had been in person, but it had to be remote due to COVID-19.

Advice

Take advantage of the time to connect with others in the organization, not just your direct supervisors!
