I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Texas System in May 2010.

Interview Details – I applied through our University career page for part time jobs. The position required basic web skills along with some computer hardware knowledge and as I already had a personal page, the employer saw it and gave me a call for an interview. During the day of the interview, there was a panel of three people who interviewed me. They all were very nice and made me feel very relaxed. The following questions were asked:
1) One interviewer showed me a printout of a HTML page which had a small list of items and asked me which tags were used to create this list.
2) Other interviewer had opened a CPU box and asked all the components inside it.
