I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at International Crisis Group in February 2012.
Interview Details – They scheduled a phone interview with me, which lasted about half an hour. They asked me to describe my interest in international relations and how closely I followed the UN. Then they explained the position to me.
Interview Question – How closely do you follow the UN? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at International Crisis Group in January 2012.
Interview Details – Job interviews tend to be perfunctory and are often done just to pretend there is an open process when in fact most hires are friends of the senior management staff -- hence the fact that the organisation is very top heavy with former UN people. Usually interviewed by the underwhelming HR director followed by a panel interview. Only rarely does the CEO involve herself in hiring.
Interview Question – No difficult questions. Mostly have to come up with ideas for subjects for Crisis Group to research and explain how you would go about it. Very little interest in management style, experience or ability. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Poor salary and benefits and the organisation is in decline.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at International Crisis Group in October 2011.
