    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Google in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    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
