    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Orbital Sciences.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews. 1 in person in person with multiple managers and analysts. Relatively low pressure but they did ask follow up questions to make sure you had to talk beyond your prepared answers. Partial focus on Internet in industry and knowledge of the company and he work that they do.

    Interview Questions

    • Entry level position. Basic finance questions and interest in industry.   Answer Question
