    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Course Hero.

    Interview

    Easy application online (just upload your CV) and then I got an email to set up an interview, as well as a few prompts to answer. The interview was 30 minutes and it was pretty standard, the interviewer was very friendly so it was very comfortable. Right after, the interviewer sent me another larger prompt to answer by email. A few days after, I was notified I got the internship.
