    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (Silver Spring, MD) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very informal, casual, and accommodating. There were three steps: an initial email exchange, a conference call with two senior planners, and finally an in-person interview on-site. The exchanges were all very personable and friendly in nature. Questions related directly to the skills and qualifications for the position, as well as demeanor for working in the environment.
