Before you apply, here is what we expect in the hiring process. First, you will read the entire job posting and follow the instructions. It’s not hard to do, but we’ll be able to weed out those who do not follow instructions. Next, candidates will undergo a 10 minute phone interview. It’s your chance to make a good impression over the phone. We expect you will research a little about who we are and what we do prior to your phone interview, so don’t try to wing it.

We will invite a certain number of applicants for an in-person interview. We are busy, so we would not invite you to interview unless we were seriously considering you for the position. The final two candidates will be invited back for an extensive working interview. As you can see, this process takes a lot of our time and it will take your time. We want to hire the best candidate and one who wants to work for us, not someone whose attitude is any job will do.
