    Interview Details

    I was interviewed at my university after the career fair. It was only two other men, and it was pretty chill. They asked me some basic questions, like about my GPA and classes I will be taking. Biggest strengths, what classes I enjoy, etc. They were very friendly and I hope to hear from them soon. I sent two follow up emails and they said they are wrapping up campus interviews next week.
