    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Halt, Buzas & Powell (Alexandria, VA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Met with Steve Halt and Andy Powell. ( 2 partners of the firm) the interview was straight forward. They were late and had me sitting in the lobby and interview room for 25 to 30 minutes because Andy was on a phone conference.
