    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was mostly done through just an evaluation of prior experience, specifically the student's performance in a class required by the major (Senior Design). Past performance on graded projects were evaluated, most likely. Other factors that probably played a role were dedication to the project at hand, past interactions with the employer during group meetings concerning the project, and the overall turnout of the final deliverable.
