    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Fannie Mae in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, in-person then panel of directors from support areas. This can go over weeks. You must show that you are a people person and your leadership is more important than industry knowledge. The soft-skills are king and collaboration is very important to demonstrate while they get a sense of who you are (Hint: you should come off like benevolent but able to control a room).

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fannie Mae.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college's website and was offered an interview. Mostly behavioral (name one time you worked with a team to do a group project) and went over my resume. I had a lot of technical stuff on there(working with microcontrollers) so interview asked about that. I explained in depth what one of my projects were and seemed really interested. I think the more technical you are, the better it is because the interviewer was surprised with my technical background and that was the highlight of the interview. Just be yourself and be confident. I got a call about 2 weeks later with the offer.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Just behavioral about teamwork. There was no business case or anything of that sort (probably because it was just an internship)   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Had a better offer from a different company
