ITLP - Intern Interview

ITLP - Intern

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GE in October 2013.

Interview Details – I had two phone interviews with previous ITLPs. We discussed things like my technology experience, why I was drawn to the job, etc. It was not a "tricky" interview -- very much just a conversation.

Interview Question – "When have you used technology to make something more efficient?" That's one of the main goals of ITLP but it was kind of a curveball for me.   Answer Question
