Summer Fellow Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New Sector Alliance in April 2014.

Interview Details

Found out about New Sector Alliance through campus' office of career services. Applied via New Sector's online portal (which had three short essays and two reference checks). Phone interview, then if advanced, second round via Skype. The process is quick, without case questions, despite the analytical nature of their internship positions which very much-so do entry-level consultant work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at New Sector Alliance.

    Interview Details

    You start by submitting your application materials on their website. After that, someone reaches out and contacts you regarding your application. There is quite a process that goes with becoming part of the New Sector cohort.

    1-After submitting your information, someone will reach out and let you know whether or not your ideal candidate. From there, you will be put in touch with an alum for your first interview.
    2-Upon successful completion of your second interview, you are then scheduled for another interview with a New Sector staff member.
    3-The last step is to get accepted into the program. After being accepted into the program, you then interview with host sites (I met with 4) to find the right fit for your summer.

    This is a very rigorous process, but my summer cohort was amazing (which means it's effective).

    Interview Questions
    • The question that you should reflect on the most is what do you like the most about the program. It's important to know this answer for yourself so you're able to be honest about what you hope to get out of the summer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation involved as a summer stipend was explicitly listed on the website.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at New Sector Alliance in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Following an online application, you'll be invited to schedule your interviews over email - first with a program alum, and then with New Sector (usually the program manager). If you accept New Sector's offer, you'll also do a number of interviews with potential host sites. The latter can vary widely depending on the culture of that particular nonprofit (and therefore are a good chance to evaluate your fit with a particular organization), so I'll focus my review on New Sector's interviews.

    Both your alum and staff member interview consist of mostly resume-based and behavioral questions, and address your prior experience as well as your interest in the program. I had very positive experiences with both interviews. My interviewees were friendly, responsive, and eager to answer my questions about the program. The overall process was professional but personable, which is reflective of New Sector's overall culture.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at New Sector Alliance.

    Interview Details

    I applied online during the rolling admission after the first round. After a week I was scheduled for an interview with an NS alumnus and had a phone interview with him within the month. It was mainly informational and just going through my resume, informal and spent about an hour on the phone. I then had to scheduled the second interview with the program director and she stuck strictly to the 30 minutes. This was most behavioral and much more formal.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at New Sector Alliance in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    The program assigns fellows to different nonprofits at which they are assigned another supervisor. Every other week, a group of fellows comes together as a cohort to regroup and discuss what has been effective. It gives other fellows the opportunity to give advice and collectively help each other finish their individual projects.

    Upon submitting my application I received an email offering a behavior and resume-based phone interview with a prior fellow.
