    The interview took place on site at my University and was done in two parts. First, I was interviewed by an HP senior manager followed by a regional director with over 500 people working under her. The interview was fairly straightforward. They tested my knowledge on HP Enterprises services, history and asked me to relate my experience to sales situations they provided.
