    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oxfam (Boston, MA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Called to schedule a phone interview which was done an hour later. Brief 30 min phone interview where the ‎Global Staffing Specialist asked questions related to my resume and the job description. I received an email a few days later to schedule a panel interview with the GSS, Hiring Manager, and current Development Associate at their Boston office. They took turn asking more specific and technical questions related to my resume and the job description. Very friendly people. After the interview I was given a writing assignment on Friday to turn in by COB Monday (see Writing Assignment below). I was told that I would hear back by the end of the week or early next week but I never hear back. Too bad.

    Interview Questions

    • The Wallace Global Fund is a foundation that works ‘to promote an informed and engaged citizenry to fight injustice, and to protect the diversity of native and natural systems upon which all life depends.’ We believe this foundation is a good prospect that could provide future funding to some of Oxfam America’s programs; however before engaging with this donor we need more detailed research that provides information on an alignment between both Wallace Global Fund’s programs and Oxfam America’s work. In no more than two-pages please provide any information that matches Wallace Global Fund’s initiatives with those of Oxfam America’s. Use any information publically available such as the foundation’s website, Oxfam America’s website, online information, etc.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oxfam (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to set up a phone interview the next week. After a phone interview with the hiring manager, I was asked to participate in an in-person or Skype interview. The in-person interview was a group interview with the hiring manager and a few different people in the department and an HR person. Everyone was very friendly and created a welcoming environment. They took turns asking questions from list. Some were repeated from the phone interview. This whole process took about two weeks. After two more weeks, I was notified that they decided to go with another applicant.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oxfam (Boston, MA) in December 2014.

    Very basic. They wanted to get to know who I was more than anything. They asked about my education and skills to get an idea of what I would be doing for them and what kind of contributions I would be able to make
