    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PAREXEL.

    Interview

    First was asked to do a phone interview with the Director of Business Operations. After that, they asked for an in-person interview. This interview comprised of sitting down with three different managers separately. Each asked basic questions regarding work ethic, time management, attention to detail, etc.
