    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Project Vote Smart (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was very short. I submitted my cover letter and resume and was contacted within a week. There was one in person interview - it was a two on one with the two research directors at the Austin office. Since PVS is a non partisan company, I tried to emphasize that I was good at not being biased.

    This was easy and there was only one interview. I was expecting more, because usually offices prefer multiple interviews. I realize it would be hard to get applicants to Montana, but I think the lack of in-person and environmental aspects hurt their chances of retention
