    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Amnesty International (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Simple group interview & if they like you they offer you the job on the spot. They tell you about the position and ask typical interview questions. They schedule interviews almost every week since they are so quick to let people go if they do not make the ridiculous quotas.

    Interview

    I had one round of phone interview with approximately 6- 7 questions and a written component (I had to edit a document and was asked why I edited the way I did). Some questions were specific to my resume while others were about my future plans, academic interests and how I got interested in Amnesty's work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Amnesty International (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The process was very quick. I applied online: they asked me to send a resume and a brief cover letter about me, my personality and what makes me the perfect candidate for the job. I got a phone call 2 days after submitting the resume and the cover letter and the interviewer asked me why I wanted to work with them. After that I received an email invitation for the interview few days later.
