    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Straight forward. Applied through my school, on campus interview. Found out 1 week later. The interviewers were very nice. You should be prepared to ask them a lot of questions or you will sit there in awkward silence. Case interview was a profit/loss case
