    good luck. Interviews can be stressful, but I always tell myself to be serious and also a bit funny/quirky during interviews so you don't come across as boring. Wish you the best.

    Good luck.

    Please keep us updated. So many guys tell us about upcoming events, and we never hear about what actually happened.

    I've never had interviews that long. I wonder what they ask you for that long. Yeah, the competitions are always intense. You may be a big fish, but there are always bigger ones out there. Hope you get it too!

    I've been in technical interviews that have lasted a whole day. think the longest one was in Boston with AMD. 5 rounds 1hr each. Got the offer but didn't end up accepting it.

    Best of luck to you OP.

    Thanks guys for the support, I'll definitely keep you updated. They basically asked me two scripted questions and had to answer from past employment opportunities and they seemed impressed with my answers and my experience. I already have two internships under my belt. One was for a month my senior year of high school in an online advertising department and one was this past summer cold calling for a deal of the day service (think Groupon/Living Social) for the same company.

    Also worked front desk/spin instructor for the past 3 years on top of the internship and was a bus boy part of my freshman year and most of my sophomore year of high school.

    It is a huge company and i really hope i get it ><. They higher like 60% of their interns right out of college.

    Well let's hope on your resume you wrote "hire" instead of "higher"

    Ops XD No my resume was perfect. Proofed read it like 5 times, went to a resume workshop and got it critiqued...and got it checked again.

    That...was just one of my silly typos icon_razz.gif
