    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HOK (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied online through the website. I was emailed about 2 weeks later asking for an interview and whether or not I wanted to do it in person or via video chat. I opted to interview in person because I figured I could be more personable with the interviewers.
    I got to the HOK office and was seated in a large conference room. I had the interview with 2 people who asked about my portfolio and school work. They also asked about my thesis and my thought process as well as the hardest moments of my thesis. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to talk them through my portfolio and if I had any questions for them afterwards. It was more of a conversation than an interrogation.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They accepted the first number I asked for, there wasn't any negotiation. I had received an offer from Gensler and I told HOK that I had received an offer from another firm and they extended an offer to me.
