    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Renewable Energy Lab (Golden, CO) in June 2009.

    Interview

    My efforts were focused on obtaining more contract work in my area of expertise. I was able to secure this interview through positive word of mouth from other contract supervisors that I was currently working with. I spoke with this person a few times over the phone before we met in person.
