    Interview

    Met Roche at a career fair at school. First interview was more or less an "elevator pitch". Had to make myself stand out from the thousands of other students meeting them. Had 4 more interviews, one at my school, and 3 back to back at Roche. Questions weren't difficult, just what I would do in certain situations and what experience I had.
