    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at County of Ventura, California (Ventura, CA) in June 2010.

    I submitted my application, which included my resume and a cover letter. I was called in to make a presentation on a specific topic, which they assigned ahead of time. After the presentation, I was interviewed by a panel of 3 people. I was invited back to a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager (who would have been my boss). This interview was a standard interview type. They went with the other candidate and were unable to provide me with specific feedback - other than that the first person was just better qualified.
