    3. If we are visiting your school, your first-round interview will be held on campus. Be sure to check out your career center to see if and when we’ll be at your campus this semester.  Otherwise, we’ll interview you by phone or at our corporate headquarters. 
    4. Your first-round interview lets us get to know you and see if you and our program are a good fit. We’ll take what we learn about you, and match you with the team where you’re best aligned.
