    Conservation Fellowship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Wildlife Conservation Society in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Invited for a 1 of 3 rounds of group interviews at the Bronx Zoo, about 25 per group so I estimated 75 people up for about 20 positions at the various WCS zoo/aquarium locations.

    First we split off into groups based off which age group we're most interested in working with during the zoo camp (toddlers, elementary, middle , teens) and were given a task to come up with a lesson plan in 10 minutes. This was pretty hectic. Next we had 1-on-1 interviews for 30-40 mins or went on a short tour of the Bronx Zoo. Questions were basic situational and behavioral questions, such as:

    Talk about a time when you had to work in a team

    Talk about your experience working with X age group
