Have you worked on that project today?

You might encounter individual interviews, group interviews (with multiple interviewers and/or multiple interviewees), testing (paper and pencil aptitude assessment, drug testing, psychological testing), meals with Virginia Tech alumni or other employees, receptions, etc. When meals are involved dining etiquette is critical.

How am I just now finding this?  Where are my meals with Virginia Tech alumni?

I actually have had interview meals with Virginia Tech alumni while not interviewing at Virginia Tech.  I highly recommend it.

I've joined a bizarre cult called JordanCanonicalForm's Witnesses.  I have to go from door to door asking people things like, "Good evening, sir!  Do you have a moment to chat about Linear Transformations?"
