I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in May 2012.

Overall just being at the Foundation for 8 hours was a little overwhelming. The interviews were pretty normal.
Interview Question – clearly no one had read my resume or even cared about it. I had spell out everything that was already included on the resume, as well as the items you generally discuss. Make no assumption that any preliminary effort was made before each interview. Answer Question
