Can you tell me about how you got the interview? 

I applied for the job on Sunday night while at the New Zealand airport on my way home from a holiday, on Monday morning at 10am I received a phone call from Elizabeth and she asked to see me at 4pm that afternoon. I had my interview with Elizabeth and Pablo. I then got asked that afternoon to complete some questions and a quiz and I got the job the following day after reference checks. It happened so quickly.
