    I worked at Resources For The Future as an intern (Less than a year)


    1. It is a good place to do research related to polices, economics and so on.
    2. People are really nice in this company.


    1. Salary is not that high comparing to some companies.
    2. It should have more group activities for the interns.

    Development Officer for Individual Giving Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Resources For The Future (Washington, DC) in June 2013.


    Initial communications involved submitting resume, cover letter, etc. through online application system.

    Was called for interview two weeks later. Interviewed with development manager, and it was a somewhat strange interview. Very few questions were asked of me, and much of the hourlong interview was spent listening to the interviewer describe how the company worked, the issues that it worked on, and what sorts of activities that the development department did.

    At the end of the interview, the interviewer asked if I would please email a writing sample consisting of some sort of request for proposals, which I did the following day. I received no acknowledgement of receipt of my writing sample, and subsequent follow-up emails went unacknowledged as well.

    I felt that the interview went positively, however, the end of the process was negative, as I received no acknowledgement of the requested writing sample, and no rejection email following an in-person interview. I received nothing but silence from the company following my interview.
