    Interview with a staffing agency (two in-person interviews with the recruiter and account manager) and then job offer as a contracted part-time assignment with Nelnet. Hiring process was fast, received a quick reply from the staffing agency (within a day) after submitting online application.

Paper-work was done promptly and was ready to begin the job the following week.
