What positions are best suited for entry-level and/or junior applicants?
Applicants with just a few years of professional experience should look at Creative’s Program Specialist and Program Associate positions.
What are you looking for in a resume?
Initially, we are looking to align a person’s qualifications with the posted position. Creative seeks people with attention to detail, as well as responsiveness to both client and beneficiary needs. Those who meet the technical requirements will be contacted for an interview.
How are the interviews at Creative structured?
Potential employees pass through at least two interviews. First, applicants who have been selected will go through a phone interview with one of our recruiters. During that initial interview, Creative’s recruiter will review the submitted information and determine the applicant’s level of motivation and passion for affecting positive change. If the candidate passes the phone interview, he or she will be invited to a panel interview. This panel is comprised of two to four team members—including the recruiter, manager and others who interact with the person selected to fill the position. Creative’s goal is to provide candidates an opportunity to meet enough people in our organization to truly get a feel for the Company’s culture, in addition to the position. Interviews typically last between 45 minutes and one hour.
How does Creative finance its projects?
Like many global development organizations, Creative competes for projects among multilateral donors. The U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.S. State Department lead the list of Creative’s clients.
