I was contacted by a recruiter via Linkedin, and we had a very productive informational interview! Then, it was the same person with whom I spoke for my official interview. It was very straightforward - questions about my experience, my interest in the job, and the opportunity for me to learn more about the position. I did not move forward, and I would have felt comfortable asking for feedback if I'd wanted
- The position was a step up in title but turned out to be very similar to what I'm doing now. I was asked about why I would want to make a lateral move, and I didn't have a very good answer. Answer Question

I applied online after finding TFAll on Idealist. I submitted my cover letter and resume, and then received an email from a would-be supervisor for a phone interview. We had a usual informational phone interview which also gauged my interest in education and international affairs. After this interview, I received an email with instructions for a skills assessment, which was timed. It was sent to me, I finished it in the allotted time, and then I received a phone call when time was up to review the exercise. After this, I had one more short phone interview, and then I was offered the internship. Three steps: -Informational screening intervew -Task-related timed assignment -Final Interview

I interviewed by phone with the human resources screener. Our phone connection wasn't good and he asked me to call him back in London. It really caught me off guard as I've never had an interviewer ask that I call long distance. I didn't get an additional interview and the interviewer didn't bother to send a rejection note.
- He asked typical "HR" type questions like how I worked in a team and the accomplishment I'm most proud of. Answer Question

I applied for the fellowship position through the teachformalaysia.org website. I was placed through 3 rounds of interview (not including the application process which is very lengthy). The three rounds included a phone interview, a critical thinking web assessment and a whole day interview. The whole day interview is definitely the hardest. It is where you gather at an assessment centre and you'll be required to teach on a subject for a period of time. Then it is the final interview.
