Interview Process

Initial Resume Review

The process usually starts with a brief interview where the interviewer will quickly go over your resume and see if you could be a good fit.


The next round of interviews consists of typically 2 interviews, each 45 minutes. Most time is spent on case studies with a few behavioral questions thrown in as well. This is the step in the interview process that requires the most practice and preparation.
