    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Allston Trading.

    Interview

    Ran into them at a career fair, handed them my resume, and received a phone interview about a week later. The phone interview was focused on general knowledge about Java, class design, concurrency, networking, and algorithms (There were a total of 12 questions). I was shaky on a few of the subjects at the time of the interview, so I didn't make it to the next round.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Why are Strings immutable in Java, and what might some advantages/disadvantages of this be?   Answer Question
