  • First Cut

    • After a look at all of the potential qualified resumes, the hiring manager narrows it down to a list of the best qualified candidates (for their particular needs)

  • Group and One on One Dates

    • First round interviews could be in a group setting or individually. The hiring manager talks about the company and asks you various questions to get to know you better - the large list of candidates i dwindled down

  • Hometown Dates

    • Only a handful of candidates remain. During the second interview, you meet the rest of the team and might be interviewed by others to see if you are a fit for the role and company

  • Fantasy Suites

    • Both you and the employer have gotten a good feel for each other by now. The final interviews take place and any a potential offer is discussed
