    I worked at Teach for America as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    TFA is dedicated to training and continuously improving their workforce, meaning that even student employees have ample opportunities to connect and network with people throughout TFA. Additioanlly, working for TFA really makes you feel as though your work has a purpose.

    Cons

    The work can be difficult and occasionally mind-numbing (hours and hours of data entry, attempting to get the attention of apathetic college students), and the low hourly rate (minimum wage) does not match the level of effort that goes into successful recruitment of top college graduates.
