    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at TransCanada.

    Interview

    Applied online through a job board. Two rounds of phone interviews, each one an hour with two different project managers. The interviews took place in the late spring for a summer internship and apparently I was one of 6 or 8 chosen to conduct phone interviews out of 40 online applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly classic interview questions...Hardest question: What was a situation in which you faced a problem and you had to choose from a number of different solutions? how did you choose this option?

      Also: Make sure you convince them that you are interested in a career in this industry post-internship. That will go a long way.
