Interviewed at SKF

Interview Details – The interview with SKF found place on Skype since I was not able to give a visit to Montevideo for an internship interview. It was quite brief and really fair and professional. There were absolutely no difficult questions but rather more personal ones in order to get familiar to each other and see whether it is a good fit.

Interview Question – Why I chose SKF was actually one of the most difficult ones.   Answer Question
