Interview

applied online, and got an OA online interview which includes 3 coding questions and 5 video question. Coding are fairly simple and video needs you more time to prepare. Overall it is very simple and you can prepare it by staring looking at some basic behavior questions online

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    A recruiter came to my university to interview me. He seemed mostly interested in my overall skills, including soft skills. I shared my portfolio of work, and he asked me questions about what I wanted to do in the future. I was surprised IBM was interested in me because I'm not a computer science major, but it didn't seem to matter.
