Thanks to whoever submitted the AAF listing noted above, but it appears to lack "how to apply" info. Perhaps links to an earlier iteration of the Internship found here or AAF's main career page will be helpful here.

The positions at the International Christian Concern seem a bit dodgy. The CEO interviewed several people. The finalist candidate was told that the ICC procedure is to bring people in to do one or two projects as freelancers first. Then, if that works out he may offer them the job. Shouldn't he explain this step in the process up front?
