    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Had phone interview first. Followed by interview with HR, supervisor and rest of the team. Second interview with supervisor. Process is fairly slow from time of first contact to offer of job, but was worth the wait.
