    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Interview

    Interviewed with three people over the phone. Was mainly a screening to see what I was interested in. Be very specific and clear about what you are interested in and know details about what departments at CDC align with that.
