    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at International Institute for Sustainable Development.

    Interview

    Terrible experience. One way video interview with no response/follow up post completion. Not only do they not allow candidates to ask questions, they also ghost after you send a video recording of yourself performing like a monkey. Unsuitable recruitment practices.

    How NGOs Can Survive in the Age of Distrust

    For the fourth year in a row, Transparify-an initiative that assigns global ratings of financial transparency to think tanks and policy-driven non-profits- has given the International Institute for Sustainable Development the highest possible marks for financial disclosure. That's a tremendous shout-out to IISD's character as we prepare to celebrate significant birthdays.
