    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at World Resources Institute in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was shortlisted first for an interview, which was followed by a written test that included making a map from WRI datasets and writing a few paragraphs to describe it. The interview was pretty laid back, and the interviewers were very friendly and encouraging, yet curious and asked some very pertinent questions that required critical thinking. It was done over the phone with 2 interviewers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at World Resources Institute (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick response after applying, set up phone interview at end of the week, in-person interview the next week, followed by a standard writing test that required some knowledge. Friendly and personable interview staff, but firm and challenging questions. Enjoyed the process but there was kind a bit of wait time in between each step.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at World Resources Institute (Washington, DC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    They sent an email to me in order to schedule a phone interview (a few days after I submitted my application online), after the phone interview they asked for my writing samples, after I sent my writing samples via email, they gave me an in-person interview at WRI. I was interviewed by two people. The interview also included a task simulation (writing test).

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you interested in this position? What do you know about WRI? They asked a lot of behavioral questions based on hypothetical scenarios. I also took a writing test, which was basically a simulation of ordinary tasks I was going to do if hired. I had to process a lot of readings and then summarize in a very short time, according to the format they specified.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at World Resources Institute (Washington, DC) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Asked some behavior questions and let me express my thinking of their current project.
    Asked me what date I can start to work. But they need someone to start pretty quick and I can't finish my current project. That's the reason I didn't get in.
    The interview was easy. And the people were friendly. Must be nice to work with if there was no time conflict.

    Negotiation

    Yes. Always ask, but remember constraints of project budgets when considering what to negotiate for.
