    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Carat.

    Interview

    LONG! I had sort of an abnormal interview process as I applied during the summer and did not get an in person interview until 2-3 months later. Relay time with HR was pretty slow. Before the in-person, I had a video interview. Afterwards, I interviewed with several teams and finally secured a position with a great team. Interview style depends on the team, some will do one-on-one, some will go all at once. Asked questions relating to professional experiences/goals/personal interests. Be prepared as with any interview and have prepared questions!
