This varies per position, but generally entails an initial 30-minute screening over phone, and an impending virtual interview with the hiring manager and human resources. A waiting period, usually one week, precedes the virtual interview to allot for scheduling and preparation. If you are the selected candidate, a verbal offer will be extended, followed by a written offer.
