The Inside Scoop on In-Office Internships

There are a limited number of internships available at The Borgen Project’s office. Only 7% of intern candidates applying to The Borgen Project are selected. While the hiring process is incredibly competitive, we look for a diverse range of backgrounds. We’ve found no correlation between interns with high GPA’s, MBA’s and/or prestigious universities when it comes to determining who will have the biggest impact for the organization. Our selection process for Seattle internships focuses more on finding great individuals, with a strong work ethic, passion for righting wrongs and willingness to take on any assignment that needs done. The in-office team is small and anyone selected to be part of it will wear multiple hats.

  • Office Culture: Work hard, play hard. The Borgen Project is a young and energetic organization. We have fun, but we’re all business when it comes to bringing political attention to poverty.
  • What to Expect: The movement is big, but the organization is small. Be flexible and be prepared to take on any assignment.
  • Dress Code: Business Casual.
