    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Parks Conservation Association.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the HR person, then two in-person interviews. One with the would-be supervisor and another colleague and the second with a four-person panel. Everyone I met was very friendly and hospitable. My main problem with the interview process was that the HR person never bothered to tell me whether or not I got the job, even after I followed up her. When you promise to follow up with a candidate by a specific date, have the common courtesy to let that person know one way or the other after they've invested time and money in the process for two months.

    Interview Questions

    • It felt more like a conversation, but questions were along the lines of 1. How do you work with a colleagues that may not get back to you? 2. What's the biggest grant you've brought in? 3. How do you stay organized? 4. What's your work style?   Answer Question
