Intern Interview

Alexandria, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Institute for Defense Analyses in March 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring process was much like most typical internship processes - throw your resume, cover letter, and transcript into a black hole and hope to hear back. Luckily for me I did hear back. The interview was about half an hour to forty five minutes and the PhD's interviewing me were very nice (seems like they're more brutal with Research Staff Member and Research Assistant candidates than Intern candidates). Week or two later I got the offer.

Interview Question – Why do you want to spend your summer at IDA?   Answer Question
