Social and Economic Policy Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Rockville, MD
“Abt does interesting policy analysis and evaluation work that utilized skills I'd learned in class. They are committed to helping people learn and grow in their careers. Work hours were flexible as long as I hit 40 hours per week and we could work from home some days. Nice perks like an on-site gym, free food and coffee. High wage for an internship ($17/hour) in a field were most internships come with a low stipend or are unpaid. My co-workers and co-interns were friendly, though I wouldn't say I made close friends. A number of interns got post-grad job offers.”
