    Interview

    It was quick and asked good questions. They were able to do phone interviews for everyone so we did not have to go in. It was with the main hiring manager rather than the program manager.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Carter Center.

    Interview

    It was fairly straight forward: I had two phone calls with them and I was asked to speak Spanish during one of them. I was asked to speak about important issues in the region to show that I had the regional knowledge necessary to succeed there. None of the questions were particularly difficult if you're actually qualified.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Carter Center.

    Interview

    Phone interview with the staff. They asked me if I'd done research in the area and what I knew about current situations happening there and what I knew about the Carter Center and why I wanted to work there. They asked me one question in Spanish. Nothing out of the ordinary that caught me off guard.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Carter Center.

    Interview

    Phone interview with three current employees, no representative from human resources. Interviewers repeated the job description, then read through a list of common "tell me about a time when..." interview questions, some of which were not applicable to the position. The experience was very awkward and not conducive to a two-sided conversation.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a manager and how you resolved it.   Answer Question

    Associate Director of Programs Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Carter Center (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I participated in a phone screen followed by a panel interview.

    The phone screen was with HR and covered the basic requirements of the position. The panel interview was with several members of the Health Program team as well as the Carter Center communications and fundraising leads. Most of the questions were standard behavioral questions, with some specific to working within an international nonprofit (comfort with travel and conducting work duties in low resource settings). I was also given a tour of the Carter Center.

     There was a significant delay between the panel interview and being notified that I did not get the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Carter Center in April 2016.

    Interview

    I had one interview and it was very difficult. There were some questions that were typical behavioral questions but I felt like they expected me to have a lot of expertise that I didn't have and had not said that I had.

    Interview Questions

    • Very difficult questions--asked about specific expertise on Da'esh in MENA and different strategies that I thought could be used to counter that narrative and different communities in the region.   Answer Question
