Application

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in January 2011.

Interview

Met 1:1 with several potential colleagues and supervisors. The on-site interviews lasted an entire day. Interviews were largely technical questions about my past experiences and education, sprinkled with several "logic riddles." The closed-room with three light bulbs and three switches conundrum is a well-known example of this type. Most of the other logic questions were more challenging and more technical. The interviews are great fun if you enjoy these kinds of puzzles; if not, the experience would be torture.

All-in-all, the interviewers were very supportive and want you to succeed. There was no indication of competitiveness – if you got stuck on one of the questions, they coached you through it.

Words of advice? Just relax, be yourself, and enjoy.
