    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at IOM.

    Interview

    Don't bother applying through the website. They received about 300+ applications for one internship and closed the application after two days. Your best bet is to e-mail someone directly and explain why you'd like to intern for them.

    Interview Questions

    • There is no "formal" interview...it's usually with the person who will be your supervisor, not HR.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I got strung along thinking that I would be a consultant. They gave me an internship. When I realized there was a guy interning who was 40+, I also realized how wrong IOM's HR practices are.
