    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Autodesk (San Rafael, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I have had Autodesk on my professional radar for years and have always been on the look out for appropriate positions. When this position appeared, I applied online and didn't hear back. Via social media on the Autodesk site I made an inquiry and quickly got a personal response from their Social Media & Talent Brand Manager. Andrew L. was particularly wonderful adding a real personality to the company I had already fallen in love with. He connected me to a recruiter for a phone screening where I had another positive experience with Michelle K. I wish I could say I eventually got the position but unfortunately, they went with an internal candidate instead. I am heartened by the interview experience, I KNOW I'm a great fit, and I will continue to aim to work for this great company.

    There were 4 phone interviews. 2 people from 2 different teams. The hiring manager on one team asked me about experience I never claimed I had and did not follow through with me.
