    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (Austin, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There were two women who interviewed me at the same time. Both of them were friendly and made me feel at ease during the interview. One thing to note is that there was a skills test in which I was timed and asked to draw a facebook advertisement. Was a little daunting, but looking back was kinda fun.
