    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at United Nations Foundation (Washington, DC) in November 2016.


    First I had an in person interview with two people in the department, which went well and was pretty standard. After they asked me to do a second round, I had two phone interviews (for logistical reasons) with another person in the department and one that oversees multiple departments. I was offered the position the next day. The whole process (from the time I applied) took about a week.

  • It doesn't get much cooler. Loving the #techforgood partnership between our own Nothing But Nets and Esri!

    The United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets Campaign Partners with Esri to Combat Malaria

    Global smart-mapping leader Esri has partnered with the United Nations Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign in the fight against malaria. Malaria claims the life of a child every two minutes, despite being both preventable and treatable. Recently, Nothing But Nets created a story map using Esri's ArcGIS platform to help people learn more about malaria.
