    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Georgetown University (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    One of the HR Directors asked me to complete a series of Microsoft Office software tests (Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint). The testing software was good, unlike other software I have taken tests on that didn't seem to allow for multiple pathways to find an answer. This software wasn't perfect, but it was ok. I ended up scoring well.
