    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BlackBerry.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications began at the university careers fair, followed up with a phone call from Blackberry in Bellevue, WA. Interview was scheduled in the following week, for a summer internship position that would begin a few months after the screening process. There were also the usual series of background checks, but those were carried out after the interview process ended.
