    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Edelman (United States)

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me and then I had a phone screen. After I did two back-to-back 30 min virtual interviews. Next step was a skills/writing assessment. Then two other back-to-back 30 min interviews.

    HR was great in the whole process until the end. After all the time I put into the process I had to chase them down for an answer on their hiring decision.
