    The mentor carried a phone interview to talk about research. For research intern, they focus on if your background match their requirements. And then the mentor have the right to decide for an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Adobe in September 2013.

    Interview

    No interview at all. The selection was based on an online test which consisted of analytical questions, quant, and basic data structure/algorithm/OOPS concepts. It was quite evident that the selection was done purely on the basis of grades. Some of my co-interns revealed that Adobe offered them the internship without taking any tests. Given that they were the class toppers, the above claim is further bolstered.
