    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a career fair and proceeded to have two phone interviews (45 minutes each). The first included two questions that were fairly straightforward. The questions in the second interview were more difficult.
