The process took a week – interviewed at SunGard Trading and Risk Systems (Lombard, IL) in April 2011.
Initially I applied to the internship via my College Career Services. I was called and briefly asked what I knew about Sungard and some behavioral questions. I was then called by my boss that I ended up working directly for and she told me about what I would be doing for the summer.
