Interview
The interview began with a short introduction, then a run through of my resume. After that, we discussed my past experience, diving into my study abroad, extra-curricular, and details of previous internships. Though it was a behavioral interview, it was a deeper dive than initial phone conversations as it was an hour-15 minute long discussion. After the cordial good bye, it was a few weeks until I received and accepted my offer.
