    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Parexel (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    It was a long interview process. Approximately one and a half hour but it was very informative. And the questions they had asked was to get to know me and my working skills better. There were two people who had taken the interview.
