    I applied through college or university – interviewed at XL Group (Exton, PA).

    Interview

    I applied through an alumni connection. After applying I was promptly contacted to set up a phone interview. Even though I was studying abroad for the semester they were very willing to work with my circumstances. Shortly after the phone interview I was contacted about a second interview. This was traditionally an in-person portion, however due to my study abroad we used google video chat. This was the final interview and about a week later they made their decision. I really appreciated their willingness to work with my circumstances and their promptness with each step.
