An amazing experience to learn how Human Rights Watch functions
Development Outreach Intern (Current Employee), San Francisco, CANovember 17, 2013
Pros: meet human rights defenders and researchers, attend special events
As a graduate student currently finishing his last month at this internship, I can say that my expectations interning at the Human Rights Watch Development and Outreach office in San Francisco have been met. The office fulfills its duties by keeping their donors informed and pleased with the work the organization's researchers perform.

As an development outreach intern, my duties were to conduct prospect research on potential donors as well as maintain the office's day-to-day operations. Tasks that are given to me by my supervisor are both challenging and fun. It is fantastic to work with such enthusiastic people who are passionate about the organization's goals by informing the public of human rights abuses around the world and their mission to defend said rights.

It is an honor to work with such a highly renowned organization committed to defending human rights worldwide.

Great Job For Work Study Program
Receptionist (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 25, 2013
This company is a non-profit company that helps out people with various crisis...from domestic disputes, to deportee issues. They refer them to the best lawyers to help with their situation. I was a receptionist and covered the phone lines as well as cases that came through email. The company was a real nice and laid back atmosphere of people who truly worked well with each other...made the days smooth.

Travail très enrichissant
Assistant de recherche (Former Employee), New York, NYNovember 24, 2014
Travailler pour HRW cela signifie travailler pour la communauté internationale. Rendez vous au bureau afin de traiter les dernières dépositions de violation des droits de l'homme, en parallèle, le téléphone est toujours susceptible de sonner afin de répondre aux appels à l'aide des victimes ou des familles de victimes.
En parallèle, je m'occupe de tout l'aspect logistique: administration, gestion des prochaines conférences de presse.
Travailler pour HRW signifie mettre sa vie au service de certaines valeurs: le respect des êtres vivants, la loyauté, le désintérêt et le courage de défendre les libertés fondamentales même dans un pays en dictature.
Le travail ne s'achève pas une fois rentré chez soi, car je reste toujours à l'écoute des personnes qui en ont besoin.
L'environnement de travail est très agréable, cette organisation étant présente sur tous les continents, il existe une solidarité évidente entre tous les collègues de travail.
L'aspect le plus difficile est de savoir définir sa place entre le militant des droits de l'homme et l'employé pour les droits de l'homme. Sur ce plan la, j'avance avec efficacité et discrétion.
Le plus agréable dans ce poste c'est l'aide aux personnes. Si jamais nous avançons en équipe pour arriver à protéger des personnes, alors la il en ressort une fierté et une détermination avouable.
