    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Google (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Very throrough and precise, yet relaxed and personal. Two phone interviews and three onsite in Dublin. They knew exactly what they wanted and asked a lot about my extracurricular experiences. Told about expeditions Ive made across the world plus previous sporting credentials. I think that gave them that bit of extra to take a positive decision
