    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick and straightforward. I was simply asked about my experiences relevant to the position, and whether I had knowledge of social science data reporting and techniques. The staff is inviting and friendly and eager to have assistance since like most non-profits, resources are low for the work they do.
