    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cogent Communications.

    Interview

    -they go through your resume and ask about your past experiences
    -It's in a small fishbowl
    -there's a phone interview with the main recruiter then a face to face interview with your potential sales manager
    -then they will most likely offer you the job 2 hours later on the phone if you get the position
