    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Atlantic Council of the United States (Washington, DC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was relatively simple and friendly; I was asked questions about my resume and experience. I was interviewed by three people; they each had marked-up copies of my resume and asked their own questions. They took extensive notes. I was asked relatively few broad personality questions (“What is your biggest weakness”) – interview focused very much on what I had written in my resume and cover letter.

    Was contacted with an email to arrange an interview about a week after application. Interview was very straightforward lasting around 25-30 minutes. One on one with a member of the department that you applied for. Very conversational and more interested in getting to know you and explaining the department's functions. Unfortunately heard back two weeks later that they decided to go with another candidate.
