Please describe the interview / hiring process.

I applied for the position online (I think through LinkedIn) and later received a call from the director of communications. We spoke briefly over the phone at that time, and then scheduled another 30-minute phone interview for later in the week. It was around late November/early December, so I think the process went a little more slowly than it normally would have due to the holidays. After my second phone interview, I was invited to come into the office for an in-person interview. I spoke with four different people: the talent acquisition specialist, a senior HR representative, the head of communications and the director of communications. After the interview, I was given an official offer, which I accepted, and I started at the firm in late January.
