Communications Associate Interview

Communications Associate

I applied online and interviewed at US Green Building Council.

Interview Details – After applying for the communications associate position, I received a phone call setting up a time for an interview. We scheduled an in-person interview. I made plans to go to DC. Two days later, I got a phone call saying they changed the interview to a phone interview with two people.

The phone interview was pretty standard. We went through my strengths, weaknesses and previous responsibilities. Towards the end of the interview, I asked what the next step was. They said they would be contacting applicants about the second round of interviews within the next two weeks.

After two weeks without any contact, I followed up via email. A week later, I followed up again. I didn't hear anything. Two months later, I received a generic email saying they appreciate my interest but they hired someone else.

The lack of follow up was disappointing.
