    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Burns & McDonnell.

    Interview Details

    Met college recruiter at my school during a career fair and signed up for a walk-in informal interview. Recruiter was very knowledgable about the internship opportunities available and he took many notes about my interests. Followed up with a phone interview about 10 days later. Then had another phone interview with the engineers I would be potential working with. Then about two weeks later received a verbal and written offer.
