    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NASA in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back in about two weeks asking when I would have time for an on phone interview. I was very nervous and didn't know what to expect. The interview was mainly about my skills and previous experience through clubs and class projects. She also asked me about why I wanted to work for NASA and what personal skills I had that would contribute to the project. I thought I did horrible and didn't expect to hear from them. Got an email about two weeks later telling me that I got the internship down at Kennedy Space Center. I left school in January to take it and ended up staying for the summer as well.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at NASA (Washington, DC (US)) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Submitting application using the Stars system is wrought with terror. A little clerical error can mean the difference between getting the job and not getting the job. The position was opened and closed then there was a long period of time of inaction. There was a lot of uncertainty about whether the job and if it was canceled or if another candidate was selected.
