    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whitney Museum in March 2019.

    Interview

    Low pressure for the most part - mainly just asked about your past experiences and your interest in the Whitney. They only interview a few candidates I believe (once they initially go through submitted applications) and they offer you the option to interview via call or in-person.
