    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Initiative (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Split up the group or interviewees - 1/2 of people did an interactive activity while the other 1/2 interviewed for various positions. We were given a tour of the office and it was nice to chat with our potential colleagues. Overall a great interview experience.
