Interview Process

The process depends on the internship that the individual is applying for but they all start with a recruiter reaching out to communicate the next steps.

1. Initial Phone Screening

Frequently, there is an initial brief conversation with a recruiter to go over the candidate's background and interests.

2. Interview(s)

If moved to the next round, the next step is a second and possible third interview with managers of the job type the applicant is applying for. There is also a possibility of tests that the applicant will have to pass in order to demonstrate an aptitude for the work they would do as an intern.
