    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wildlife Conservation Society (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Went on a first round interview with a women from HR. After a 20 minute conversation, she took me to meet with my current supervisor. We spoke for about 30 minutes. They were very welcoming and friendly. I was asked to come for a second round interview the next week. I was told in advance that I would have to complete a short exam that consisted of some relatively beginner excel work and a typing test. I also met with three different staff members in the department that I'd be working with. I actually liked taking the test-- it was a good preview into the work I'd be responsible for if I accepted the position, and it gave me an additional way to prove my skills outside of just the interviews. Tests are not typical of a program assistant position. These details vary based on department.
