    They say what goes around comes around - and it's the principle of karma. Even physics agrees that forces always exist in pairs: Newton's third law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. This applies to the everyday.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cox Enterprises (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.


    Received an inMail from recruiter to contact directly if interested in the position. Upon reaching out to the recruiter I was immediately succumbed to a phone screening/interview for which I was not anticipating. This was somewhat daunting as I was not prepared nor in a conducive environment. After the initial phone screening, the recruiter requested my application. I was also told I would hear from the recruiter by X time on X day. I have yet to hear from the recruiter or receive any further follow up communication.
