    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Veterans Affairs in January 2019.

    Interview

    I went in and met with the supervisor and discussed the position that was open. It was laid back and we talked about the goals of the organization plus my career goals. I am a veteran so they were able to directly hire me so that was very convenient
