    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MIT.

    Interview

    The first interview was about 30 minutes, the second was an hour. It was very engaging and not intimidating at all. The hiring managers were very friendly and the overall tone was colloquial and inquisitive. They wanted to learn about it.

    Sadly, I never heard another word from them after months, despite following up. This seems to be a very unfortunate trend when it comes to hiring nowadays. Zero courtesy or decency.
