Fund-Raiser Interview Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Telefund in March 2014.

Interview Details – Submitted application information via their website and was called back two days for a telephone interview.She asked me if I was familiar with any of the abbreviated campaign names that she read off. I told her no but I'm familiar with campaign telemarketing because I did work at another company. she said well if you work at that company and you should be familiar with some of these campaigns. I told her the campaigns I worked on which were not the ones that she read to me. She then told me that maybe I should go to their website and read more about their company and she can we interview me without prejudice.
