How did you find out about this opportunity?
I found out this opportunity by IBS Networking platform.
How was the application process? Did you have interviews? (if so, tell us all about them – type of questions, difficulty, duration, steps you had to pass through from the application process until the final yes…)
I had a single day of recruitment process. Started by a group dynamics (like a case study, but it was too specific for us to understand), then an individual exercise. In the end each participant had an individual interview.
After sending your application, how long did you wait until the company contacted you?
