The area has lots of places to shop both materials- and food-wise." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"On travelling - the directions given to us via mail wasn't so great. But the directions on the website were superb. Very easy to get to. I was prepared to answer the questions. They were pretty general questions and you answer and direct them in a way that is suited for you. I love to cook and bake, so my interviewer asked a few questions about what I cook and bake. I also knew quite a bit about urban health, which my interviewer was interested in and had some knowledge about. He asked me about my family and I asked about his. We had a great conversation!"
