    I worked at Public Health Institute part-time (More than a year)


    My project team was small and everyone had strong work ethic. Manager was available at all times.


    Not too much mixing with other project teams.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Public Health Institute in July 2014.


    When I was interviewed, there was a panel of three people that worked at the branch I was at in Sacramento. That was the first time I had a panel of interviewers, but they were very nice and welcoming and didn't make me feel pressured at all when I was answering their questions. They did expect me to answer questions specifically about telehealth, even though the application stated that you didn't need to have specific experience in telehealth. I answered to the best of my ability and drew from past internships and experiences and education, and apparently that was good enough because I got the position! Make sure to have solid references that will give you a good recommendation, as well, because they contacted all three of mine.
