General Interview

Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at National Urban League in August 2009.

Interview Details – A long telephone interview, followed months later by an in person interview.
Apparently they had hired someone and it hadn't worked out.
The boss took a phonecall while I was in the interview. It was rude. I was later to find that this was not just in interviews, but in any kind of meeting.
They were desperate to find someone, and I expect they are desperate to find someone again.

Interview Question – How do you support social change? Why do you like black people?   Answer Question
