    I worked at Association for Talent Development part-time (More than 10 years)


    Incredible networking organization; dedication, energy and commitment of volunteers is contagious and inspiring. Good practical information and learning for training practitioners of all levels.


    It seems the direction of the local chapter changes every time the board changes (which is every year). Offerings for emerging trends and high level practitioners is limited at times; however it is still a great resource and a great organization to volunteer for!

    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Association for Talent Development (Alexandria, VA) in May 2015.


    Interviewed for the country director for its oversea expansion, total through two Skype interviews, one with the potential line manager and HR, the other with the line manager and sales director and the marketing content provider. What surprised me at the beginning was that they didn't use any psychometric assessment tool for the candidates although their asserted that the market was critical and the director role would be the first startup guy for the country. The Skype interviews were mainly about the background check, understanding the sales philosophy and other general open questions. I was specialised in designing assessment centre for senior management role, and I couldn't tell those questions were finely designed to dig out what competencies the candidates had. Right before the 3rd round of in-person interview, the headhunter told me that the decision was made and no need to follow up, with surprise that the headhunter had received very positive feedback after the 1st round interview, while 180 degree opposite after the 2nd.
