Pursuing a Career in the Think Tank and Public Policy World
Interested in working with experts committed to making an impact on public policy? Wish to work for an organization that is a catalyst for change on important world issues? Then, consider working at a think tank. The mission of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is to advance peace through analysis, fresh policy ideas, direct engagement and collaboration with policy decision makers. Think tanks are research organizations that hire researchers, fundraisers, communications/public affairs professionals, and administrators. Come to an on-campus information session with the Carnegie Endowment and learn about public policy and why it matters, how think tanks and other policy institutions make an impact, and the Carnegie Endowment’s mission and career opportunities.
