    Interview

    After the initial phone screening, I had to wait about 1 month for most of the team to be back in DC because they were all overseas. The interview went so-so; they didn't seem particularly crazy about me, but I heard from them 2 weeks later. I got the job offer but had to wait another month to start because my supervisor was overseas.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at World Vision International in September 2014.

    Interview

    Short, in person interview, applied online. They just asked me about my resume, class experience. Also asked about my language ability, because I noted my French experience. They did not, however, ask me to actually speak French. Because this is a religious organization, they asked me about my faith and my ability to work within a diverse work place.

    Interview

    Need to have a strong Christian background and ethical foundation - this organization participates heavily in daily Christian devotional meetings, active prayer, etc.. If this isn't part of your lifestyle - it's not going to be a good fit. Team dynamics are essential - if you're not a selfless team player - don't bother.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you resolve a difficult ethical problem that calls your faith into question (explain a situation where you actually did this).   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    Salary was a primary concern - they don't have much to give (being a non-profit). Awesome benefits - almost makes up for the low salary. Justify your pay by listing benefits to the organization.
