    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter reached out to schedule a video interview. Interview scheduled, then they needed to change it to in- person which I was happy to do but then they backtracked and decided to downgrade the position to a temporary Administrative Administrative position for someone immediately local to the area. Very streamlined hiring process.

Set to rise 80 floors to a total height of 1,035 feet, HKS-designed Wilson Tower will be dubbed the tallest building in the state of Texas upon completion! Its signature design feature includes a brise soleil that wraps the tower's entire glass exterior giving protection from the hot Texas sun and wind. As said by HKS' Brad Wilkins the vision for this building is to set a new bar in skyscraper residences for Austin with a purpose to foster creativity and social connection. Take a look at what's to come for the project: https://hks.onl/3hJQH9b #design #architecture
