    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Galileo Learning (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I had an interview with one of the camp directors. He asked scenario questions about what I would do, what I am interested in, why I want to be a summer intern. He made it super fun and was very energetic. At the time, my resume was pretty empty with only volunteer positions and teacher's assistant positions. I had 1 position where I did have experience working with children.
