    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Geological Survey.

    Interview

    Phone interview with three geologists. They took turns asking questions, seemed very laid back and helped me if I struggled with a question or needed clarification. Mostly asked about my research and classes and wanted to get to know me.
