I submitted a resume and cover letter and then had a phone interview with an associate. A few weeks later, I received a call from the director of the division to let me know I had been offered the position.

    I saw the announcement for a Human Rights Watch internship online. It was a dual internship, assisting two departments at once. I sent my resume, references, and application materials by email. I then was contacted for a phone interview, an online skill test, and a video conference interview.

    Interview

    There were two rounds of interviews. It wasn't too difficult.The first interview was more general. During the second I got to delve into my interests a bit more and ask more in depth questions about HRW.

    Interview Questions

    • This was such a long time ago. I suppose it is a bit difficult to come up with fresh questions during the second round. So one question I asked was for my interviewer to outline the differences between hrw and amnesty.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Human Rights Watch.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone with the Associate. Half of the the interview was in English and half was in Spanish. Then, there was a timed exam. If I remember correctly it was 1 or 2 hours to research a specific topic (killings in Juarez, Mexico) and write a report. If you pass this round, you have a final phone interview with the Researcher.
