Interview

My first two interviews were via Skype from my university. This was followed by a super day in Boston where 15 candidates were brought in for 5 spots.

Interview Questions

How much would you value an apple tree at (Note: not how would you value an apple tree, they made it very clear that they wanted an exact dollar value)...also got asked plenty about how to value a technology company that does not have stable income yet (this is obviously very related to what they do). Plenty of questions were asked about the current trends in the technology industry, so make sure you read up about industry trends. I got asked one question that was very analytical about how to solve a company problem with client demanding certain rates.
