    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview with my host site. Nothing too intimidating. Just the usual questions. They are trying to get a feel for your experience, passion for the cause and location, and whether or not you are a good fit for the program. My second interview was with my sponsoring organization (not all sites have this). It was the exact same as the first interview, but with a different person.

    Replied to job opening via email. Was asked to come in for an interview.

I was told by the supervisor that he liked me and my answers and would hear back shortly. I was then welcomed to the team within a week. After being selected, I met with the other five teammates a few days before flying to pre-service (on-boarding/orientation) in Santa Fe, NM.
