    I worked at International Rescue Committee (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very close opportunities to get in touch with refugee clients, the collaboration between different departments within the office is close. Also the senior managers will give the interns opportunities to participate in the meeting and learn.

    Cons

    The office especially the digital platforms are outdated or inefficient due to lacking fundings. Files are mostly in paper stacks so adding the time for going through the documents.

    Advice to Management

    Should improve the digital platform collaboration and the document management systems. Also IRC should improve the salary to keep the good motivation, it only pays like 60% to a similar position in other nonprofits.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at International Rescue Committee (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Well arranged interview process. It took about 2.5 hours with four people with different roles. But they did not give any feedback after the interview. I was wondering if they did need any person at that moment.
