    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AmeriCorps.

    Interview

    I had a phone call interview with hiring team and Americorps staff, at least 5 people were in the room and each asked questions. They asked pretty standard interview questions like work style and how you'd deal with work place situations as well as about my long-term goals. Overall fairly easy and no curve ball questions, but that could vary widely depending on where exactly you interview

    There were 2 interviews, the first with the americorps program and then with the site leaders. Pretty straight forward conversation about life goals, why you want to do the program, what you hope to get out of it, previous experiences and skills, ect. The second interview was more specific to the organization I worked with-- an overview of their organization, the expectations and my skills.
