    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Sent my resume and cover letter via email. Heard back within a few days asking for an interview at their office in Queens in a few days time. Interview was about 40 minutes and was one-on-one with the project manager. She was very welcoming and professional. Overall, it was a great interview experience.

    She first asked me a little bit about myself - where I was from originally, how I liked New York, how I liked graduate school so far. She then asked more detailed questions about my resume and work experience - tell me more about your work analyzing data and xx lab, what are your strengths and weaknesses, why are you applying to this particular internship position. Very typical, basic interview questions. She then asked me if I had any questions. Afterwards, she proceeded to layout the basics of the internship - stipend (it was unpaid), the duration, etc.

    She did ask me for three references prior to interviewing - I printed them and brought them along to the interview, but she never asked for them again.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.

    Interview

    Process was very long but very precise and organized. I was emailed by administrative assistant to set up interview. Interview was set up. The day of itnerview I met about five people on the team. They seemed to be going by an itnerview guide and were asking me questions back to back, it was a long process but it was great getting to know more about the program. I also had to do a writing assessment the same day. About a week and a half later I was called back for a second mroe informal interview, this interview also went well as I got to ask more questions about the department and find out more about how DOH works.I was asked for references after this point. The team was very thorough, they answered all my questions in person and even after the interview when I sent some additional questions via email.
