    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gensler (London, England) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was in their meeting room, they asked me if I want to show my portfolio on the screen. Normal questions, normal interview process, I introduced myself first and talked through four projects (two academic projects and two professional projects) that I selected from my portfolio. The interviewers are really patient to listen to myr presentation and they also asked me a few questions that related to my design. No tough question. They will print your CV as well. In the end, they asked me if I have any questions for them. The whole interview process took around 1 hour-ish.
