    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Museum of Science and Industry (Chicago) (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The process took a couple months from submitting resume online to final interview with a mix of phone interviews, emails in between and in person, day long interview with different people. Overall it was a smooth process with a lot of wait time in between, but it was around the holidays and new year so that was probably a big factor in the time frame.
