Interview Details – While the process took longer than other interviews I've had, the staff at Ketchum was transparent (as much as possible, anyway) throughout several rounds of interviews.

Interview Details – Several rounds of interviews, starting with a phone interview.

In fact, don't assume that the job description you read even matches the actual position offered.
