    Journalist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salisbury, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Borgen Project (Salisbury, NC).

    Interview

    The interview with the Borgen project was a very easy process done via Skype telephone. After submitting writing samples to their satisfaction I was asked to do a writing skills test that measures your journalist talents. After passing this test I was asked to schedule a Skype interview. My manager was very nice, and easy going. She mainly asked how I describe global poverty and what I know and also hat I knew about The Borgen Project and if I had fundraising experience. Long as you do your research you will succeed in an offer. They were quick to respond after the closing of the interview. I received an email with a lot of training info he next day.
