      Business Outlook


      Passionate employees and incredible mission and data-centered program quality.


      Disproportionate compensation for level of employee commitment. Few growth opportunities. Nepotism and fraternizing as well as very little change in response to allegations of discrimination.

        Business Outlook


        Excellent commitment to work life balance. Excellent benefits and paid sick/vacation.


        Staff in resettlement fields tend to burn out quickly due to high workload demand and very little pay. Pay in Seattle at the IRC is still below Geographical pay scale for many, especially those who have been with the IRC for a while.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Do you have to interview again if you didn’t get the job the first time but the HM wants you to apply to the additional positions that opened up a few months after?

      I made changes to my resume and would like some feedback and/or constructive criticism. Please don’t be mean… the job search is hard enough already (ex- “this resume sucks” is not helpful 😂). I applied to 40 jobs today using this version (adding/removing key words, technology platforms, and phrases to match job descriptions, but overall the same resume) 😬 Really hoping to see an uptick in interview requests soon. 🤞🏻

      I am having the most important interview of my life in a few hours. High-end position. But I am stressed because my situation doesn't allow me to lose this chance. Does anyone have tips about what to say when they ask you how you process in sales to seal deals? I personally love the spin method but it is so instinctive for me that I struggle to describe it in a correct way for an interview and I lose my words...
