    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Center for American Progress (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I went in for an in-person interview and spoke with 3 members of the team. There were a lot of specific questions about my resume and past experience. I was highly qualified for the job. The most senior interviewer seemed incredibly bored and annoyed to be there.

    I submitted a paper I had written to my interviewers the following day. I got an email response telling me that I would find out about their decision about next steps within a week or so, and I never heard back again. This is my biggest interviewing pet peeve.
