    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Burns & McDonnell in February 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviews:

    October: In-person 30 minute interview on campus following our career fair - this was fairly general and the interviewer was not part of the group that I wanted to intern with.

    February: a 30+ minute phone interview with the CDB office manager and my internship mentor that was specific for the location and type of internship that I wanted
