Interview Details

There were two rounds of interviews. It wasn't too difficult.The first interview was more general. During the second I got to delve into my interests a bit more and ask more in depth questions about HRW.

Interview Questions
  • This was such a long time ago. I suppose it is a bit difficult to come up with fresh questions during the second round. So one question I asked was for my interviewer to outline the differences between hrw and amnesty.   Answer Question

    I applied online - interviewed at Human Rights Watch.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was over the phone with the Associate. Half of the the interview was in English and half was in Spanish. Then, there was a timed exam. If I remember correctly it was 1 or 2 hours to research a specific topic (killings in Juarez, Mexico) and write a report. If you pass this round, you have a final phone interview with the Researcher.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were expected...i.e. why do you want to work for Human Rights Watch? What skills can you offer to Human Rights Watch?   Answer Question
