    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Counterpart International (Arlington, VA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I applied through the online system. I had one interview with two manager-level people who vetted me more for technical knowledge, and then a second interview with the program officers/assistants and the team director that seemed to be more about personality meshing. I heard back within a week that I had gotten the job and I started right away.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview was focused on international development knowledge, language abilities, career aspirations - this was for an internship after all.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was an intern position, so there was no negotiation.

    Senior Program Officer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Counterpart International (Arlington, VA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    My resume was submitted for a grant proposal. After it was accepted, I was interviewed by phone by the business development team and group manager. The process was mainly a formality. About a month later I was contacted and given hiring information. They never requested an in-person meeting before asking me to sign a commitment letter, which I thought was odd.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Due to the low offer, I let them know I would need work 10 hours a week outside the office.
