CPR's Intern Testimonials
"As a summer intern, I had a front-row seat to a wide range of CPR’s operations. The CPR team went above and beyond my expectations to ensure this summer was a positive and beneficial experience for the interns. Not only did my CPR internship provide great exposure to the world of ADR, but it also turned out to be a fantastic opportunity to work with and learn from a talented, dedicated, and congenial team of individuals."

"This was one of the most productive summers of my life. My first day as an intern at CPR, President Obama announced that he was nominating Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. As soon as I got to the office, I began to diligently research Sotomayor’s judicial ADR history. Russ and I were able to write and post articles on the website shortly thereafter. Interns at CPR always feel like an essential part of the team. From day one, the staff here immediately trusted me with challenging yet important and enjoyable responsibilities that motivated me to learn more about dispute resolution and prevention."

"Interning for CPR allowed me to experience first-hand what it is like to work in the Marketing field. I was given real responsibilities and projects which opened my eyes to all aspects of Marketing. Working at CPR also taught me what it is like to work in a team. Everyone at CPR was always willing to lend a helping hand and made me feel welcome right from day one. I am certain that the skills I have acquired during my time at CPR are skills which I will carry with me as I continue my career path in Marketing. I couldn’t ask for a better experience."
