    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at U.S. Department of State (United States)

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back and comfortable. I was asked some conventional questions such as, “Tell me about yourself” or “Why should we select you?” I was also asked some specific questions, but they weren’t bad at all. With solid preparation, you should do well. It was an overall positive experience.
