    Interview Details

    Applied online via a school-oriented job posting site (mustangjobs), with only a resume submitted. Was contacted by HR (Carol Farag) to set up an interview with my boss-to-be (over the phone). All the questions were mostly soft-skill based. Nothing very technical. After a week was contacted again to be hired a week later.

    Interview Details

    I first emailed my resume and cover letter to the director of the Paramount internship program and she forwarded them to the recruiter. Got a phone call from the recruiter to talk about my interests and he suggested that I interview with the accounting/finance department due to my major. After a week, I was brought in for an in-person interview with my future supervisors. Oh and there was an excel test because my job requires a lot of excel.
