    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Microsoft in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by campus recruiters for an on campus interview after a career fair.

    Interview Questions

    • First were behavioral questions, which were fairly standard. He then asked me to explain HTML: what the acronym stands for and what it means. I have no web experience (and don't claim to; I'm computer engineering and am more interested in low level programming and firmware, as indicated on my resume and the form I returned to schedule the interview). I admitted to my ignorance and was instead asked to redesign a parking structure near my university on a game day that had a traffic problem. I was given a couple minutes and a piece of paper. I basically did a nodal analysis on a circuit, with the streets being akin to wires and wrote a differential for cars entering the lot. He said I shouldn't have assumed the traffic problem was outside the lot.   Answer Question
