    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Went through University recruitment process. The process included submitting a transcript and cover letter; after making it through the first screen, I got selected for the round of on-campus interviews. Unlike many other firms, I only had one round of interviews. The interview consisted of one case interview (but they basically held my hand the entire way) and one fit interview. Very friendly and very straightforward.
