Interview Question – What was the most difficult thing you have done. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Conservation International in January 2013.
Interview Details – I had two interviews - one phone, and one in person. I was very pleased with how quickly they moved along - my in-person was within 2 weeks of my phone interview. Interview questions were very standard, nothing that I could not answer. Ultimately I did not get the job, but the person I interviewed with thanked me personally for coming in.
Interview Question – Asked why I wanted to work with CI - this is difficult, because I think they are looking for some passion-inspired, overarching answer to why someone would want to work for a nonprofit, specifically theirs. View Answer
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Conservation International in June 2009.
Interview Details – Applied for job and got an email back requesting a phone interview. We had the standard questions - why are you interested in this job, your work experience, etc.. This phone interview was only with one person - the coordinator of the team that I would be working with. That was successful and they asked me in for a second, in person panel interview, which consisted of the core members of the team. Pretty relaxed - it seemed like the second interview was mostly for finding out about my personality, interacting with me in person, and seeing my body language in addition to my answers for the interview questions.
Interview Question – Why are you interested in conservation (my experience did not show any conservation interests or background)? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate for a minimally higher salary but I shot myself in the foot because I made it very clear that I was going to be taking this job even if they did not increase the salary. Also only had one round of negotiations - felt like I could have negotiated harder. Negotiations also probably depend on the time of year - if it's early or late in the fiscal year (June), then you can probably negotiate better because they're either developing the budget or they have a full pot to work from.
