Research Coordinator and Volunteer Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AmeriCorps in December 2011.

Interview Details

I applied online to several positions in different locations.

I was curious to see what the job entailed, so I cold called one of the supervisors. I got all the information I needed and continued with the application.

Shortly after applying (no more than three business days) I received a call from the direct supervisor. The person I spoke to was exceptionally cordial and asked a lot of general questions (will provide details below).

The next day I spoke to another supervisor. This person asked the same questions in addition to a few personality questions. Fairly simple.

All in all, there were a total of two phone interviews. The people in AmeriCorps are much more interested in your personality and passion than experience.
