    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Amnesty International.

    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Amnesty International (Amsterdam (Netherlands)).

    Interview

    I applied online - submitted a CV, cover letter, and writing sample. One week later I was invited by email to an interview to take place one week later. For the interview I prepared an assignment. A few days after that I was told by email that I got the position. The interview itself included questions about why I want to work for AI, my interest in the specific work of development, discussion of the assignment I had completed, and my background in human rights. They also spoke about their work and also they were nice to answer my questions about the organization, so I learned a lot in the interview about AI.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Amnesty International.

    Interview

    It was a very easy and unformal interview, which was the result of a simple online application. The interviewer was young and she tried to get to know the real me. Questions were simple (for example: 'what are your weaknesses?'). I also got a call back very quickly, but I had to decline the job offer since I realised that I am not interested in working in a non-profit organisation.
