    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at APCO Worldwide (United States)

    Interview

    The process took 2+ months, and all of my interviews were done remotely. It started with a HR call about 2 weeks after applying online, followed by a call with a senior director. Then I was sent a skills assessment (creating a creative campaign, analyzing data, and a "cold email" writing exercise). The process concluded with a video panel interview, followed by a reference check. Everyone was friendly and passionate about their work.
