    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prospect Capital in January 2020.

    Interview

    3 rounds of 30 min in person after a quick HR call. The people were very nice and they run a tight group. I had a good experience there, but felt the role did not fit well.
