I was able to contribute immediately as an intern.
I was unable to continue my internship into the subsequent school semester due to the company downsizing the department I worked in.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Praxis Engineering.
Very thorough. Not only met with management (hiring manager and VP) but also the team I would be working with. Got a clear sense that it was important that in addition to being capable I would fit well with the team.
Received a fair offer.
