    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FDA (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I responded to an email that was sent out via my engineering department. I heard back from the supervisor within a week of my email response and scheduled a phone interview for the following week.. The overall process took about 2 weeks and was very smooth and easy (which is surprising for a government position). I also got asked to interview for a different position and project as well during my interview.
