    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TechSmith (Ann Arbor, MI) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I visited a booth at career fair, and was contacted for an interview afterwards. The interview was held on my campus. It was very casual, easy conversation for the first section of the interview, mostly asking about prior project experience and what kind of software I'm interested in. Coding question was a fairly simple programming question that built onto itself.
