    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Council on Foundations (Arlington, VA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First, I had a 30 minute phone conversation with the senior director. Second, I came in for a panel interview with the entire team two weeks later. Third, I met with two SVPs and followed that up with another sit down with two members of the team.
