    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at ICF (Irvine, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was simple and not as intimidating as other interviews I had been through. The first call is from a recruiter who asks you a series of generic questions that help them determine if you would be fit for a second interview. Second interview is in person or Skype depending on location.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ICF (Atlanta, GA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was exactly 30 mins and the time was mostly spent describing the position and all that it will require. It was a behavioral interview so there we a few scenario based questions. I would suggest pulling from all of your experiences, whether work related or not, and actually writing them down and identifying how you handled it and why- just to prepare yourself. The conversation was very comfortable and it didn't make me nervous at all. Overall it was a great interview.
