    Community Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at International Rescue Committee (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was an intern for a year and a half before interviewing for this position. The first interview was an in-person interview with the office's ED which was a fairly straightforward conversation about the organization and interest in the position. The second round consisted of an assignment due before the actual interview (newsletter article and fundraising proposal), and an interview with the ED plus two of the office's program managers.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was asked during the second round in relation to my fundraising proposal. Should you be in a similar position, come prepared to answer questions on every aspect of your proposal.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at International Rescue Committee (New York, NY) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Three rounds: First an introductory phone interview with recruiter, then an in person interview with program manager and director, and final interview was with more of the team. Interview questions were pretty standard and the team was very flexible working with my schedule. Interviewers made me feel comfortable after informally chatting for ~5 min before getting into interview questions.

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at International Rescue Committee (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Well arranged interview process. It took about 2.5 hours with four people with different roles. But they did not give any feedback after the interview. I was wondering if they did need any person at that moment.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at International Rescue Committee.

    Interview

    I applied to the position through the IRC website. Two-and-a-half months later I was invited to interview with a senior recruiter. The interview was a 30-minute phone call during which I was asked to confirm some of the information from my application, provide answers to some behavioral questions, and provide my salary expectations.

    One month after the interview with the senior recruiter, I was asked to interview with one of the senior staff that I would be working with should I receive and accept the offer. The interview was a 45-minute Skype interview. The first few minutes consisted of introductions and a few behavioral questions. The next and longest portion of the interview was a case study based on a real issue the organization had faced in the past. The final portion was reserved for questions regarding the position.
