    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United States Olympic Committee (Chula Vista, CA).

    Interview

    You apply online at teamusa.org and click careers. Then applying through there will allow you to submit your resume and additional information. INCLUDE A COVER LETTER. Make sure spacing is correct, grammar and information is perfect. If there is incorrect spelling or grammar, forget it we will just pass through and move onto the next. An intern will sort through the applicants then provide the supervisor with a top five, then they will choose two applicants to interview over the phone. You move to Chula Vista/ San Diego and live at the US Olympic Training Center. There you are paid a stipend every two weeks of about $200. Your room and food plans however are already taken from your pay. This is a unique experience but don't expect to work for the USOC following your internship they usually aren't hiring.
