    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SITA (Bohemia, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    They made a full review of my work experience, asking for as much details as possible from each project I have worked. The MsC degree contributed a lot but due to a lack of experience in Azure platform I was dismissed.
