I worked at The Boston Foundation part-time (More than a year)
- Working with many charities and nonprofits would endearing company missions.
- The work is meaningful across all departments.
- The workers are conscious people.
- Opportunities to reflect on your job and ways to improve.
- If you're in school, the busy season occurs during finals season which can get stressful.
- Work/life balance can become blurred.
I applied online. I interviewed at The Boston Foundation in October 2015.
I applied and was invited to interview for a Fellowship position with TBF's Nonprofit Effectiveness team. The interview itself was fine, and the two staff members that met with me were very nice. The interview itself lasted about an hour and was fairly typical as interviews go, they covered the basics of the organization, what their team did, and what the position would entail. After the interview, I was told that they were planning on making a decision by the next week, and I sent a thank you via email as soon as I got home.
A few days later I followed up with a few questions I had about the position's duties and never received a response. After two weeks, I had yet to hear from anyone about a decision, so I sent a follow up email to one of the employees I had met with expressing that I was still interested and inquiring as to the status of the position. Still no response. After the third week, I reached out to the HR rep that initially contacted me about the position to see if it had been filled so that I could move on, and he responded that they were still making a decision. I never did hear from anyone.
Communication was pretty terrible and really disappointing, especially considering I had met with two staff members for an hour.
