    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at EF English First (Toronto, ON) in September 2019.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a 30 minute video call with one of the recruiters who had been through the program before. The interviewer started off by getting to know a little bit about me, and moved into more stereotypical interview like questions.
