Graphics Interview

Graphics

The process took a day - interviewed at University of Wisconsin in March 2009.

Interview Details – Got invited to their office, and was interviewed by three people: the HR, the main designer of the graphics dept, and head of another department. They described what the company is all about, how many people I'll be working with, and the office that I'll be placed in. Overall, they were really nice and helpful. Although a panel interview sounds intimidating, this one wasn't.
