    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Round one was a short conversation with a regional director. He asked me to walk through my resume and then spoke to his background. That left some time for Q&A and general conversation and then the "interview" was done. I flew down to Austin the following week for 4 30 minute interviews, all extremely similar to the first interview. There were a few follow questions but minimal, if any, scripted questions asked. They more or less seemed to be looking for soft skills and career fit.
