    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WestEd (Fresno, CA) in Apr 2021

    Interview

    The interview was fairly relaxed, the questions asked were just about how comfortable you would feel carrying out the task required of the job and how you would go about doing them.
    Interview

    How would you find clients with who we haven't been able to get into contact?
