    International Division Program Officer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at John Snow, Inc (Boston, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interview questions were very straight-forward. I think expectations are very high, though, despite how easy the questions are and there's a lot of competition for positions at JSI. The interviewer got back to me two weeks later, but I wasn't selected to move on.
