I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory (Troy, NY) in April 2015.

I talked to a recruiter at my schools career fair and was asked to talked about my experience with android programming. (The job ended up being completely unrelated.) Was later emailed about having a phone interview with the supervisor I would be working under. Went well asked about past projects and if I had any experience with c++ programming. No real technical questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory (Lexington, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Excelled in a class offered at my university taught by a professor with ties to Lincoln Laboratory. After attending a lecture the Lab gave on campus, I expressed interest in their internship program and sent my resume in along with two references from professors.

    This gave way to a phone interview, during which I answered technical questions and explained some of my personal projects taken on outside of the classroom. They seemed to mainly be interested in intellectual curiosity and creativity.

    After the phone interview, a few weeks later, I received an email from HR stating that the group I had spoken with on the phone was interested in offering a paid internship position, and I completed a boatload of paperwork and security clearance forms from there to accept the offer.
