    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NASA (Boston, MA) in July 2020.

    Interview

    Interview was remote via google hangouts, talked with the two team leads from my top 2 locations. It was a very good interview, easy going, and they are really nice/personable people. Questions weren't too hard or grueling. Definitely prepare though. Half were logistical, half were real interview questions. I haven't heard back about my offer yet.

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

    Interview

    Overall it was straightforward. My PI was very nice. I applied for the social and science communications intern role. I only had to submit an application and they reviewed it from there for me to get an interview.

    I applied online. I interviewed at NASA.

    Interview

    There was not interview for this position. I applied online and received an offer after 2 week of applying. I would say that it depends on the position that you are applying for. I am not confident in saying that it is the same way for all internship positions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NASA (San Francisco, CA) in April 2020.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the NASA DEVELOP summer position. There is only one interview session, which lasts about 45 minutes. It is all behavioral questions and some questions regarding to your tech experience but experience is not necessary. The interviewers are really friendly and helpful so it felt like a casual conversation. It was done through Google Hangout and you can expect to hear back 3-4 weeks depending on how fast they're reviewing applications.
