    Interview

    I heard about an intern opportunity through an acquaintance of mine. I contacted the company and submitted a resume and cover letter and received a response within a day or two. Every one who I interacted with in the company was very kind and courteous. The process consisted of multiple phone interviews. Even though I wasn't able to get an internship opportunity for the summer I will still keep in contact with the representatives as this is an incredible place to work.

    Phone screening, followed by a long series of testing conducted online/via email to confirm ability to do the job. They estimate the unpaid training will take 20 hours. However because the test administrators/reviewers are in Manila and have a lot on their plates, response time with test results is slow. It took about 2 months to complete the process.
