    Interview

    Only one senior architect interview me in a meeting room/went over my portfolio/What do you want to know about PW/ introduce the model shop and the office/

    Overall, the interview talked more about the portfolio other than anything else. When I asked him which studio am I possibly assign into, he did not know whether it is general hire or for a particular project :(

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Perkins & Will (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview was great, started off meeting with two employees who told me a lot about the position. This took around 30 minutes max. After two follow up emails I was sent the generic email that I did not get the job. I personally thought the interview went amazing but you never really know what interviewers are thinking, always keep an open mind and continue to look elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Perkins & Will.

    Interview

    The interview process was easy. The interviewers gave me an interior via webcam as I was from out of state. They made the interview process very comfortable for me. They asked the basic questions, and didn't really ask me to "tell them about myself". The conversation seemed to flow very well, and I left the interview with a smile on my face.
