    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DigitalGlobe (Longmont, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    There were three rounds of interview. Basic interview process but there were many candidates. Interview took hour an hour for each round. The team was friendly and asked usual interview questions. Although preparation is required. The panel was interested in knowing how genuine, spontaneous and good communicator you are. As this was a marketing intern position, they wanted to know your interest towards marketing.
