    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NBCUniversal in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on the NBC Careers website. It took about a month or so to hear back. First was a phone interview with a recruiter where we went into great detail regarding my background and experience as it relates to the job that I applied for. After this, I was extended an in-person interview with 2 managers and director of research. After three weeks, I was called back for a second round interview with the VP of research where I also met with the HR director to speak about the position and the culture of NBCU.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at NBCUniversal in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process went extremely well. The interviewer was very relaxed and seemed genuinely interested in placing me in the right position. She asked about my interests, how I found out about the company, what roles I would see myself in. Definitely expect to answer the typical "tell me about yourself" questions, also be prepared to present why you truly want to work for the company. Be genuine. The company truly wants innovative thinkers and interns who have done research before applying.
