    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BerlinRosen (New York, NY) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I thoroughly enjoyed my interview process with BerlinRosen. My point of contact, a Manager of People Operations at BR, was extremely helpful and shepherded me through the whole process. Further, I greatly enjoyed interviewing with their team members (in the Tech Practice), all of whom I found delightful, highly intelligent, and full of good humor.

     Here were the steps involved in my interview process.

    1. A phone screening with their in-house talent person to assess whether I might be a fit.
    2. A writing assignment with a 48-hour turnaround.
    3. An in-person interview with a panel of three people (1 hour)
    4. A second in-person interview with two other folks (1 hour)
