    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (United States) in Feb 2021

    Interview

    very enjoyable. Two person interview. Very relaxed about what the job entails and questions about how I see the role and what I could bring to it. Spoke about culture at the organization and organizational changes.
