    Organizing Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    I received an email from the area field organizer regarding working for the Obama 2012 Campaign as an organizing fellow. The "interview" was more like a pitch to me convincing me I should intern (volunteer) for the campaign. It included a very vague description of what an organizing fellow would do. I then had the option expressing continued interest or declining. When I said I would like to work as a fellow, I was asked if I knew anyone else who would be interested as well- more of recruiting pitch for the program than an interview.

    Field Organizer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Organizing for America (Washington, DC) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was not super strenuous because I was hired on after working as a fellow with the campaign. I basically just had a conversation with the RFD who already seen my work style and capabilities, so there were no tough curveballs.
