    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Department of Defense.

    Interview

    After the initial application, there was only a video interview with the program director. Questions were relatively straightforward, just over my resume and some behavioral questions. Great idea and a great opportunity to expand your skillset with the military
