    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Landor (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I contacted the design director directly through a connection. HR then scheduled a first interview, in person with said design director, that included a portfolio review. I was then scheduled for a second interview with a larger team, again talking about the role and reviewing my portfolio. At the end of that second interview, I was offered the internship.
