    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was a campus recruitment. I have 30 minutes of talk/chat with the two interviewers. I didn't prepare any power point slides, hence it didn't go well. I would say, if I get a second chance, I wouldn't screw it up.
