Interview

Unprofessional. The recruiter was 20 minutes late, called to reschedule, and then 15 minutes late for the rescheduled call. Said she'd be in touch in 1-2 weeks. No follow-up even until now.

I interviewed at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Interview

Went to a recruiting info sesh, applied, got an email invite to interview. Interview was an hour and all behavioral. Very friendly people. Waited for about 3 weeks until I got an offer. Most competitive part was probably the resume drop (on LinkedIn alone there were hundreds of apps for one position after only 2 days)

Phone interview screening for full-time job, however recruiter was somewhat unprepared and did not have my resume on hand, so there wasn't many questions relevant to my resume that they could ask me which I feel slightly hurt my chances overall
