    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at W.W. Norton.

    Interview

    Had 3 phone interviews with person hiring for position and 2 senior level employees. Phone conversations were generally positive and fairly in-depth. Each interviewer had different methodology when asking such as Q&A, discussion, and conversational. I was able to articulate my strengths and experience while also asking some questions about company culture. Interviewers expressing varying levels of interest in me as a candidate.
