    Interview

    The process of applying summer intern of discovery this year is online application, survey, and two interviews. The first interview is an online video audition. I feel like it was not a tough interview, one needs to answer several interview questions and just to be oneself is gonna to be fine.

    Interview

    I had a very comfortable interview. I was contacted by an HR representative who gave my information to a hiring manager. My interview was around 30 minutes. I felt Discovery was looking out for my best interest as well. Questioning wether this was the right semester to intern. Everything went rather quickly!

    I originally applied online in February. Then in March I had to do the video interview answering four questions.
