I have been working at US Agency for International Development full-time (More than 5 years)
Life changing and meaningful work. Positive environment and some of the smartest people I know. Get to learn a lot about how the government works and interagency relations.
Looming budget cuts proposed under Trump administration has everyone on the edge. This is also making implementing partners nervous. Otherwise, great place to work
Advice to Management
Management is great as are all other employees.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at US Agency for International Development.
I submitted an application online through a USAID contractor, and was told about 3 weeks later that I would have a Skype interview. This interview was conducted by a panel of 4 people, three at USAID and one from the contractor. I would say that the questions were fairly normal. Thoroughly researching the program that I was applying for was a good call since they were clearly pleased with my prior knowledge. A few hours after the interview I was informed that I was a finalist for the position, and about 2 weeks later I had an additional phone interview with the head of the department. About a week after the second interview I was given an offer. From submitting my application to receiving an offer the process took about 6 weeks.
