    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ExxonMobil.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with a recruiter on campus and submitted a resume during our campus' career fair. I was contacted a week or so later for an on-campus interview. The interview was entirely behavioral, "tell me about a time when you dealt with x, y, or z." The interview was pretty relaxed and the interviewer did a good job of making it seem rather informal. Be sure to prepare specific examples of projects or teams you have worked on.
