    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at W. R. Berkley (Alpharetta, GA).

    Interview

    The interview felt like a conversation with a friend about work history. My resume was reviewed and we talked about specific parts of my job descriptions and how they aligned with the current position. I left with a good feeling about the interview. The first interview was in person with 2 people and then second one was over the phone with multiple people taking turns asking questions.
