Field Coordinator Interview

Field Coordinator

Interviewed at Médecins Sans Frontières

Interview Details – The hiring process begins with the completion of an online application. I was contacted via email one month after application and was invited for a telephone screening interview a month later.

The screening interview lasted 12 minutes. Although I have not yet advanced to the next stage, I was told I would be contacted in 1 or 2 weeks regarding the status of my application. If still found to be competitive, I would be invited to an in-person interview. If approved, I would attend a 3-day training course before being entered on the job roster for deployment. I was told the deployment process takes 6-9 months on average.

Field Officer Interview

Field Officer

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Médecins Sans Frontières in January 2012.

Interview Details – It was very interesting process, other than the usual interview (via skype) there was also a recruitment center which is a day long workshop to explore one's ability to interact with others and to see if they are team players. I found it very useful in the way that it provided me with some self awareness.

Interview Question – I was presented with the problem of a number of people trapped in a cave and was asked on how to coordinate their exit   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The process was very relaxed and transparent, the HR coordinator was very clear regarding the rules and regulations. All my questions were answered.
