    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Conning in December 2018.

    Interview

    It began with a phone screening, and followed by an in person interview. The actual interviewing process was fine, what bothered me was how long it took before hearing back from them. I followed up with them to see if they reached a final decision, they responded by saying that a decision wasn't made yet. I got my rejection 2 months later.
