Entry-Level Think Tank Jobs

<p>So I realllyyy want a job as a research assistant or similarly entry-level position at a public policy think tank. I'm interested in a wide variety of public policy issues, so I'm open to institutions that study many different specifics, but I'd prefer a place that is non-partisan/independent. </p>

<p>I'm a recent history graduate from a top 3 liberal arts college, and am just beginning a job search in entry-level think tank positions. Does anyone have any advice? If you were able to get such a position recently, how did you do it and what might you suggest I do?</p>

<p>Anyone have any experience with this?</p>

<p>Is that a like a big tub full of brains?</p>

<p>Ideally, yes, it would be a big tub full of brains.</p>
