    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Novozymes in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Short interview, only about two hours long in total. They asked me to prepare a 30 minute presentation, which ended up being for a single interviewer. The presentation is really the only opportunity that you will have to demonstrate your competency for the job since the rest of the interview is basically cookie-cutter questions (eg/ three weaknesses, describe a situation you dealt with, etc.). Seemed like a good place to work though. If you get selected for an interview, prepare for the questions that other people have previously stated for Novozymes, but definitely prepare an interview that will make you look great (brag a bit about yourself and your qualifications instead of just focusing on the subject of the presentation).
