Getting an Interview
Graphic Designer Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at World Vision International in March 2012.
Interview Details – The gentleman who conducted the initial phone interview was very friendly and personable. The gentleman who conducted the 1:1 interview was arrogant and condescending. Had I been interviewed by 1:1 person first, I would not have pursued the opportunity any further.

Reason for Declining – I did not like the man who would have been my supervisor. He was arrogant and condescending.
Systems Administrator Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at World Vision International
Interview Details – 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 Question – How would you resolve a difficult ethical problem that calls your faith into question (explain a situation where you actually did this). View Answer
Negotiation Details – 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.
