    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Senate (Washington, DC) in March 2014.

    Interview

    One phone interview after submitting application with recommendation. Received notice of the phone interview a few days before it was conducted, then had the call, and was notified of my acceptance a few days later. Had to run my background and application "by the Senator." Then had to submit to a background check.

    Negotiation

    They gave me a few days to consider the offer.
