Amanda said that for her every selection stage was full of challenges, especially during the interview selection. “The selection process itself is very challenging because the interviewees are also native speakers, so when I passed the first interview I was shocked and after that I got a pass email for the last interview,” he said. When contacted, it turned out that after passing the last interview, Amanda would make the best of her internship opportunity at this international organization.
