    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Verisign.

    Interview

    Had a 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter. Was rather informal compared to normal interviews. He asked me some of the standard behavioral questions but mainly it was about my experience with the technology I have used and they use and whether I could become comfortable with it. It seemed more like this call was simply them confirming that I seemed a good fit and that they had already chosen me before. I heard back from them the next day with an offer, but had to decline as I could not afford to relocate at the time.

    Interview Questions

    • What languages are you comfortable with?
      What environments do you work in?
      How do you feel about working in groups?
      Etc.
