    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Smooth, efficient, and quick. Felt collaborative instead of interrogative. Questions were relevant to the position being applied to. Interviewer was warm and enthusiastic for the interview. Questions focused a lot on how to contribute to the community / role.
