    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Christie's (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    First interview consists of standard fit questions, not so much a test of artistic knowledge. one on one interview with business manager.
    Second interview is a cataloguing test with a speacialist. Need to prepare and catalogue pieces according to Christie's standards. Time limited
