Intern Interview

Intern
Charleston, SC

I applied through college or university and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud.

Interview Details – Blackbaud posted a position for an internal audit summer intern on my college campus's career services website. I submitted my resume through that website. About 2 weeks after submitting my resume, I received an email from HR asking to participate in an online interview recorded via a webcam. I would be given an interview question, and then I would have 2 minutes to record my response. A few days after completing the online interview, I received another email from HR inquiring about a phone interview with one of the auditors at Blackbaud. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, and it was very laid back - no behavioral questions, no case studies, just a conversation about the experience I would be receiving as an intern. A week later, I had another interview with the Director of Internal Audit, and the very next day, I received an offer.

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate salary.

Education Consultant Interview

Education Consultant

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud in November 2013.

Interview Details – Had an initial phone screen and was scheduled for a second round of interviews. The times were mixed up by the person scheduling. I asked many times for confirmation, but no response. Finally got a random phone call by two managers for an interview (I was unaware, because no one had responded to my emails or phone calls). It went fine, but again was told someone would reach out either way and they did not.

Interview Question – Typical interview questions.   Answer Question

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst

Interviewed at Blackbaud

Interview Details – The interview process was quite extensive and informative. Nature of the process was an initial phone interview with an HR representative. After that I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then I had a Skype interview with the candidate who's position was being backfilled. I was then flown down to the company Headquarters and spent an entire day with back to back interviews with 8 different employees.

Interview Question – There was not difficult or unexpected question that comes to mind as I had already had two phone and one Skype interview. I had also done a lot of research and spent a good part of my interviews asking lots of questions.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud in October 2013.

Interview Details – After talking to them at a campus career fair, was asked to attend an on-campus first round, followed by the on-site about a week later.
The on-site involved a tour, some group problem-solving (which was really fun), and a series of one-on-one interviews with both management and the technical staff.
