Program Manager Interview

Program Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at NYC Department of Youth & Community Development in July 2011.

Interview Details – One on one interview with Director of Program and perhaps a Deputy Director
Pretty relaxed and friendly
Usually some time will be spent speaking about the Unit or Department - what it does, its size, hierarchy, how people get along, staff meetings, how people work together, etc.

You may be asked to describe your experience. Have you worked with the non-profit experience. How much do you know about after school programming or community programs. Have you managed people? What's your style of management? Give examples of your analytical work. Have you done program evaluation before. How effectively do you communicate and provide some evidence or examples. You could even get a fun question, depending on your interviewer, e.g. what's your favorite superhero and why.

If you have experience working directly with clients, for example youth or people in the community receiving services, you may be qualified to work at DYCD as a Program Manager. They like people with public sector or non-profit experience.
