    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Purpose in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The initial application consisted of three short essays aimed at both determining writing capability and passion for solving world problems in addition to a resume and cover letter submission. They got back to me within a few weeks and told me I made it to the interview rounds. I had an hour long Skype interview asking both fit questions and some informal case questions. At the end of the interview I was told I might need to have one more interview in the coming days and that a decision would be made in one week. However, I received an offer letter three hours later and gladly accepted the offer.

    The interview was not overly formal and I felt very comfortable throughout the entire interview.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Purpose.

    Interview Details

    Quite a lengthy process, expect a couple of interviews, tests, etc. They might get a while to get back to you until you receive an answer. They take their time in hiring people. Expect a process to go through!
