    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Children's (Seattle, WA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted by phone by department manager for initial discussion on job and if it was an interest. Scheduled for an informal phone interview with manager thereafter. Then met for two separate panel style interviews within the department and team. Received a call back about a week later with the job offer.
