    Application

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Union of Concerned Scientists (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    After submitting my application, I was contacted within just over two weeks and invited to participate in a video interview stage. I was given a week to prepare for the interview and record my answers via HireVue. A week later, I was invited for an in person interview. The whole process was very efficient while at the same time still personable.
