    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    I applied for positions online and also spoke with several recruiters at a college career fair. A recruiter emailed me with an opportunity and asked if I was interested. I was invited for an interview the following week. For the interview I was asked to prepare a 20-30 minute presentation on a technical subject of my choice.

    The interview consisted of a series of meetings with different members of the group in which I would be working. Many questions were technical.
