    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blackboard (Reston, VA) in Feb 2021


    It was a series of panel interviews and the teams were nice, candid and conversational. Many had worked at Blackboard for a long time and was willing to speak openly about their experience. The team felt very warm and welcoming. It as a positive and informative interview.

    How do you handle work-life balance? How would you drive change and transformation? Tell me about your experience coaching and mentoring teams?
