    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Future (South San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    My most recent job interview was a positive experience. The interview panel was a diverse team of professionals consisting of Publisher's, VP of Sales and Editors. They asked several questions about my qualifications and past experience. I came well prepared and was able to ask questions about the company as well.
