    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Interview was quick and easy, more of a formality than anything. They just give you a quick call on the phone to ask about your resume and applicable experience. After a chat they accept most applicants because there is a very high turnover rate for student callers.
