    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Resource America (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2015.

    30 minute phone screen followed by an on site interview at the Philadelphia office. Quick, relatively easy process with low intensity behavioral questions. Employee recommendations are the primary method of obtaining interviews for the internship at Resource.
