I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oxfam (New York, NY) in December 2016.
I applied for the position online, and received a phone call within a week or so from an HR representative. After an initial phone screening, I was then invited for an interview via video call with a panel of 2 HR staff and the hiring manager for the position. Communication throughout the process was great, and the panel interview was straight-forward and relaxed. They mostly asked questions about my relevant experience and why I wanted to work with Oxfam.
