"My last company was much smaller. We didn’t have the budget or resources to accomplish the types of projects that I wanted to be a part of. We outsourced a lot. At CareFirst, someone identifies a need for a project and they can get the budget and work on it from the ground up – concept to completion.”Bryan McDonough, Manager,Digital User Experience

Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing. You're great!
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (Owings Mills, MD).
I applied online for the position and got a phone call the same day from a recruiter. It was a pretty basic phone screen with a couple of behavioral questions thrown in. An onsite interview was scheduled for a week later. This was with the hiring manager and two programmers. The questions in this portion of the interview were more technical, but you are not expected to write any code. They also ask a lot of questions about your resume. Know and truly understand your object-oriented programming and MVC concepts and you should be fine. A database question was also thrown in there. Got an offer about a week later and took it.
