I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at DLR in March 2010.

Interview Details – You have to know who you will be in front of...this will allow you to focus your abilities. We can never fake who we are, we can only push our set of abilities to the max and tell the story. The story is written all over our face, with ever word and every experience. Its not an audition or interview, its a taste test.
