    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at ICF International (Fairfax, VA).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted 2 weeks later by recruiter for phone screening. They then flew me in for a day of interviewing, which went well. I had to give an hour-long presentation, but wasn't told about this until the day before the interview. I managed to put something together and it went well. I met with everybody on the team, some one-on-one, some pairs, some small groups.

    Interview Questions

    • They mostly asked questions about my skills and experience, and how they would relate to the position.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I would have accepted their offer but I received a better offer from another company that seemed more interested in me. If I'm looking for a new job in the future, I will definitely look at ICF again.
