    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Human Rights Watch in June 2017.

    Interview

    They called for a phone interview. It was hasty and lacking real interest. They asked several questions about my personality but nothing about why I would make a great Associate or what experiences in my professional life would allow me to excel. I was cut off several times and it was somewhat rude.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Human Rights Watch (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting my application, I received an email a month later asking for an automated video interview which was 6 questions long. About a week after submitting the video interview, I had a written "skill test". I never heard from the organization after that and a month later saw via the portal that I had not received the job . This is one of my favorite organizations and have worked with them in the past, but the processed did leave me a little disenfranchised.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Human Rights Watch (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    First, I had to submit a resume and cover letter. You were then emailed confirming an interview. You have the first interview, which is short and easy. Then, you have a skills test exam where you have to write a research report, and then a second interview with senior researcher if you make it past the exam.

    Interview Questions

    • The exam had you do a research report in 3 hours. Was difficult and time sensitive, but a little fun. Made it past, but got rejected after the final interview.   Answer Question
