I interviewed at International Rescue Committee

Interview

Average interview with many different situational questions. Difficult to be an unpaid intern and expect them to drive people around. Would need to be compensated some how. They also don’t do a good job of letting you know you didn’t get the position.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at International Rescue Committee

Interview

Process was very quick and was in three stages: (1) interview with the HR focal point, (2) interview with the hiring manager, (3) technical test which included developing a communications strategy. The technical test was what you would expect based on the job description, and resembled very closely the actual work done on the job when I finally started the role.

Interview Questions
  • How do you manage a project with multiple stakeholders and make sure it is completed on time.

  • Why do you want to work here? How do you deal with stress? What part of the job would you find most challenging? How do you maintain good working relations with colleagues?

I interviewed at International Rescue Committee

Interview

I spoke first with the recruiter and then had my first virtual interview. I was then called a week later and we set up a secondary interview. Afterward, I never heard back. They completely ghosted me. I understand that ghosting in the interview process happens, but I was very far in the interview process and it would have been nice to have them at least extend the courtesy of a generic email.
