    I worked at American Friends Service Committee part-time (More than a year)


    There was a lot of freedom in my particular program to try new things as long as you could get the funding for it! I found it worked well for those with an independent spirit.


    There was a lot of paperwork and hurdles to jump through in order to make key decisions, especially with the leadership's focus on consensus as a strategy for decision-making. I admire the value but keep that in mind if you want to get things done quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Value the younger generation and new ideas.

    Average Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Friends Service Committee in June 2010.


    I sent a cover letter and resume by email. They replied and we set up an interview time via email. At the interview, I waited in the chapel area of the church with other applicants, and was given religious materials to read. In the interview, I talked to two people from the organization (president of the chapter and his assistant), who asked questions about my resume and my life philosophies. They did not give any indication whether they liked me or not, but said they would call.

    Reasons for Declining

    The job posting said the position would be traveling to local college campuses, talking about intercultural peace and conflict resolution to political science clubs. However, in the interview, they revealed those discussions would need to showcase their religion as the solution to conflict. I was not comfortable with that.
