I'm new to the thread too (just been lurking haha 😄) I received an interview request a bit ago as well. Scheduled for February 3rd.

Congrats everybody!! I'm super anxious right now cuz I haven't received any email from them yet 😬

Don't fret too much :)
I think it's still pretty early for requests! I got an email some weeks back that said something about interviews going from February to a few days before the final notification deadline (sometime in March).

Congratulations to everybody who has been invited to interview! :) Exciting and terrifying to know that they're contacting people already!
@lucychoi97 I haven't heard anything back yet either, and sounds like they do it over quite a long period of time so might have a while to wait yet! Been trying to distract myself but unsuccessful so far haha

I found out that my interview is going to be with Anna Thomas and Paola Villegas Soruco. I'm curious about the others!
Who are you interviewing with?

Thank you!
I'm sure they will be sending more interviews, I was looking at last year's thread and if they follow similar dates, they will be sending interview requests for quite a while! I'm rooting for everything to work out! 😃

Hi @marianass45, I'm interviewing with Anna Thomas and Derek Olson. And my headshot was terrible-ish. My partner took it for me but it's no where's near professional haha, it's the best I could do while stuck in my house haha.

Hi everyone! I just found this thread... I'm interviewing with Jacob Forman and Jonathan Fernandez on Jan 25! Much earlier than a lot of you so I'll follow up with what my experience was like for those interested. Best of luck to everyone!!
Good luck! Be sure to add your application with the relevant dates to our database to help others. :)
