    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Library of Congress (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    This was structured interview of 8-10 questions that are asked of each candidate. Three employees conducted the interview and took turns asking questions. They would write down my answers as I was giving them.
