    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. Questions were focused on team building, project schedule management, risk mitigation, business relationship, etc. A lot of effort in Fannie Mae was focused on SDLC process improvement, so a good understanding of SDLC process would be a big help. Other questions were mostly from PMP certification study, such as scope and quality management, task tracking and status reporting, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. One screening phone interview, followed by a hiring manager phone interview. The questions were very easy. Because it all happened in the late spring semester, I'm guessing that they needed to fill a position. All happened very quickly.
