    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    no interviews, but many personal statements. You can apply through ucla websites. There are more internships for Daily Bruin other than marketing. There are about 5-6 questions you have to ask for applying. I think it is more important to put your passion rather than experiences because it is college internship. They know it is hard for students having professional experiences in background.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you applying for this job? What motivated you to work at marketing field.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UCLA.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. First round interview was behavioral (why do you want this job, what's a defining leadership experience, etc.) Second round interview was to work with a team to create a presentation that would be given to a hypothetical group of students. That was a bit tough, because you want to stand out but not be too dominant.

    Interview

    The interview was for a undergraduate research position that opened up for the duration of the summer quarter at UCLA. I found a listing for the position online and emailed my resume and cover letter. I received a request for an interview within the week. The lab where I interviewed was affiliated with the Brain Research institute. The interview was non-formal and was conducted by the lab's PI.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was about my experience with fMRI. Since my experience was limited and my exposure to the technique was limited to the classroom setting, I struggled.   Answer Question
