    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wattpad.

    Interview

    It was through an application through the job system at the University. I applied and was selected for an interview. We talked about the company for 30 minutes (what they do, how the teams work, etc). Then, he asked me if I had more questions, and then he jumped into his two questions.
