    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Campaign for the Environment (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview has 2 phases. The first phase is the actual interview. I was interviewed with staff director for about 15-20 mins and offered to join the observation day. The observation day is the second phase of the interview. It is a great place to learn the environmental issues and gain experiences. The coworkers are very friendly and knowledgable.
