    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at EAB (Washington, DC) in August 2019.


    The interview process was professional and organized. I submitted my resume and was sent a cognitive ability exam. After I completed that I contacted the following week to schedule a phone interview. After my phone interview, I was invited for an interview at the EAB office. The in-office interview consisted of two 30-minute behavioral interviews.
