    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WestEd (Israel)

    Interview

    An initial interview with research leaders was followed by two interviews with in-house communications professionals. Everyone was a pleasure to interact with. Each demonstrated high standards by asking well-thought out difficult questions.
