Pros

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at International Energy Agency (Italy) in Aug 2021

    Interview

    Very long but with kind people. Three steps, the first one is CV screening, second interview to know you, third interview with a senior (to know you and to go more into technicalities).
