    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Sector Alliance (Burlington, VT) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a member of the Program Team. The interview was very quick and I didn't feel like I could answer the questions fully because I was cut off. I asked the interviewer what her favorite guiding quotes were and she liked this question.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at New Sector Alliance.

    Interview

    Hiring staff reached out via LinkedIn. About a week later, I scheduled an informational phone interview to learn about the organization, position, and staffs' reasons for noting me as a potential fit. A week or so after this call, I applied and had a 30-45 minute phone interview. Shortly after, I was notified of my acceptance and then had a short in-person alumni interview.

    RISE Fellowship 2015-2016 Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at New Sector Alliance (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied later in the application and did not hear from them until a month and a half later. It was a 2-round interview process. The first interview is conducted with a current fellow, and the second is with New Sector staff. My case was special in that I was given a third interview. I think they were unsure on me and wanted to give me another opportunity. For this I am grateful and I can tell you that New Sector is all about developing the people they take on.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at New Sector Alliance.

    Interview

    The first interview is a phone interview with a New Sector alum, lasting around 20-30 minutes. The second interview is slightly longer (40-45), either conducted in-person or through Skype. Mine was the latter, and went very smoothly. The New Sector staff interviewer was very nice, and asked fairly standard behavioral questions. There is a 'fun' question at the end where you get to be creative!
