He spent some time asking for more details about my resume, and his behavioral questions branched off from my experience on my resume.

    I interviewed with Technology division following a diversity program. Thus, my first round interview was on-site. It was a combination of technical and behavioral interview. I walked through my resume and answered several easy java questions. The superday was two two-to-one interviews and was a mix between technical and behavioral questions too. They will ask you questions based on your explanations on your resume, so do know the stuff on your resume and pick the ones you know the most to talk about.

    Interview

    It was a fairly straightforward interview with the HCM department. I applied online and then again through my school's career center website in October. l was called in for super day in November 2015, we had first rounds (one interview), a few hours later they called to let us know if we made it to the second round (two more interviews), and then we were free to go. It was overall what you might expect from an interview with HCM; the questions were on fit, experience, and why GS. The interviewers were all very nice and the candidate pool was very friendly and warming. I was called with an offer 3 business days later.
