I applied online - interviewed at New Sector Alliance in September 2013.
Interview Details –
Because I had previously served as an AmeriCorps volunteer under a program manager who knew the New Sector management team, I believe that my application got a second look.
The initial application process required the submission of an essay, a resume and a cover letter. Upon passing this initial check, I was invited to a 30-minute interview with an alumnus by phone. She was friendly and down-to-earth, and she asked the standard behavioral interview questions.
After passing the initial alumnus interview, I was invited to an hourlong in-person final round interview with a program manager at the office. Like my previous interviewer, she was friendly and conversational, and the questions were fairly standard, e.g.,
-Why New Sector? Why now?
-Tell me about a time when you made a mistake/failed.
-Walk me through your resume.
-What kind of nonprofits are you hoping to work with?
-Tell me about a time when you had to deliver a project in an ambiguous and complex environment.
Interview Question – What is something about you that we don't already know from your application? Answer Question
The process took 2 days - interviewed at New Sector Alliance in October 2011.
Interview Details – Very straightforward, lots of behavioral questions. I was a weird case.. I interviewed really late because they had an extra spot. So my interview process was accelerated. After you interview with them, they set you up with interviews with different host sites and you have to wait until you have a match (you like the host and the host site likes you). I think that process takes much longer and is probably more difficult than the interview with New Sector. Sometimes people aren't matched even into the training session but things tend to work out.
Negotiation Details – No negotiation phase.
