    Interview

    I was interviewed by two people who worked in the department I was applying for (Computer Science). They were generally pretty friendly and the interview was not too difficult. They asked me to describe some of my classes and some projects I had worked on. They also asked me to walk through my problem solving process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NIH (Indianapolis, IN) in May 2015.

    It was non standard to say the least, the person in charge of me when I was eventually hired called me on the phone and simply asked if I had worked with computers before and then told me he would see if he could find someone who needed an intern.
