Interview Process: initial 30 minute interview on phone. At least one more interview 90 minutes preferred in person, but will do via Skype, if necessary
(not required up front to be considered, but will have to take it for the position) I can review the resume to determine whether we want them to complete this. If we are really impressed with someone, I do not want to delay and risk losing them. But most will be asked to complete this via an interview after I have reviewed.
