    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at About (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was all done over email. I was recommended by a current employee, and the manager for my department, emailed me back the next day. He sent me a PDF with job requirements and asked me a few questions about experience and my last corporate job. I found it a little unusual because I have never been interviewed entirely by email.
