    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Way (United States)

    Interview

    First round with internal recruiter, then a video call with CEO, HR Director, and another program director. Felt conversational and the interviewers were nice and welcoming. There were planned questions but the conversation was organic and we delved into other topics as well. Org was communicative throughout the process.

United Way, California Capital Region, is addressing the woeful lack of financial literacy in America by introducing the concept of saving to the very youngest students--kindergarteners! With a seed of $25 donated to each student's account, they kicked off the college savings of these youngsters and their families. The Young Leaders Society that launched this program know they're on the right track. Studies show that if a child has even a small amount saved for college, he or she is three times more likely to attend and four times more likely to graduate. So, they partnered with SAFE Credit Union and California Assemblymember Kevin McCarty to offer the K2C Program. The class of 2030 will certainly thank them! http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMeYX
