    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Dimensional Fund Advisors (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The HR is so nice and she always encouraged you and told you great. It's just a resume-walking interview and she ask some questions about the former internship. And she also asked some questions about the IT ability. Because I listed several software in my resume and she asked that which kind of software I was the most proficient.
