    Program Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sponsors For Educational Opportunity (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview, two in person interviews.
    The first in person interview had 2 writing assessments and a demo lesson in front of a group of students. The second in-person interview consisted of a panel interview with 3 staff members and then an interview with the VP. Overall, it seemed like they weren't able to think outside of the box and wanted an exact fit for the position. During the last interview I felt like I was being weeded out--they were really hung up on my past job experience not being EXACTLY the same as what this position entailed, although I've been doing college access work for a while now. I got a really elitist vibe from the panelists--they kept saying that 100% of their students go to 4 year colleges when in reality most successful college access programs fall within the 80%-100% range, so it's not like they're doing anything particularly innovative.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sponsors For Educational Opportunity (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Went through half hour or so phone interview and an in-person interview was set up for a few weeks later. Interview was one-on-one with director and conversational in nature. It somehow seemed like the organization did not know exactly what they were looking for with this position. Meeting was about 45 minutes. Indication was that there would be panel meeting at later rounds.
