    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at AHRC New York City (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Arrived a the location and found that I was supposed to fill out a PAPER application; It was identical to the application I filled out online. Apparently the location does not have their systems entirely digitized. I was interviewed by two people, the current (temporary) director and the director that will replace her. They were pretty general in their questioning, such as the type of people I've worked with and my work background in general; they asked about my education once they realized it was relevant. Overall the interview seemed more like a casual chat, so it wasn't intimidating or anything.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at AHRC New York City (Little Neck, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I contacted my local YMCA via email asking if they were looking to fill positions for their summer camp. I was quickly responded to by a summer camp coordinator and set up an interview date via email. Shortly after I received a phone call and was told what specific things I would need to bring. I was also given a brief description of the positions looking to be filled. I met with the coordinator that week and filled out a lot of paper work. The coordinator then asked me questions about myself, my plans, my passions, my interests, and why I wanted to work with individuals with special needs.
