    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Vera Institute Of Justice (Washington, DC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Two interview process - the first was a 30 minute Skype interview with the Director of the Center and the Associate Director. My interview process after the first interview was a bit different because I received a competing offer - the timeline was crunched a bit. I was also interviewing having worked with the Director on another project where my current employer was partnered with Vera. The second interview was supposed to be about two weeks later, but due to competing offer, I had second interview and an offer within 72 hours of my first interview.
