    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in November 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone interview was set up really easily and with just one exchange. The conversation was about 40 minutes long. It was fairly informal, really interesting actually as the recruiter was able to speak at length about the team and leadership. I talked bout my experience and track record got to ask some questions too. It was very positive, respectful, and just a really pleasant experience. Not sure if I will make it through the cut to the next step but all in all I am glad I applied and interviewed.
