Interview

Applied in January then had panel interview in February. Job offer in late March. Delay was due to being second choice in process. Everyone was great and friendly, but the state refuses to pay qualified candidates a decent wage. Lowballed and not given right level by Civil Service. Does not value education only work experience.
