      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Human Rights Watch (Johannesburg) in Aug 2023


      It was over a Zoom call with two employees. The ladies were kind and facilitated a good interview setting. Would have preferred post-interview communication though. Very poor communication as I am still not sure if I got the job or not. They had promised to communicate but they did not.

      Q: What experience I have in research Q: What are things to note in research? Q: Have I published any research pieces Q; Why HRW?
