    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fund for the Public Interest (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Some of their staff were tabling on my campus and out of curiosity I attended one of their "informational meetings". I wasn't expecting it to be a job interview nor to fill out a job application but I got a job offer anyways.
