Toronto Interview (Neutral Experience)

Interview Details – nothing much but just a lot of question is so dumbing down myself, I am frustrated by the ease of the question, not intellectually chanllenging and not at all test the ability of mine. hence, do expect more and harder question during the second round of interview, if not it means there are too few people entering the posisiotn

Be, honest yet careful as to how you state your state of employment with the current (immediate past) employer. Hard if one is leaving the current employment for non-alignment of basic values in the work environment. Although very important for me and many others, it would be hard to state if this is the main and only reason for changing jobs. It is important to have a couple of options or lines with as much truth without betraying confidentiality or compromising professional integrity.
Interview Question – how would you rate your current job? Answer Question
Research Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Toronto in March 2009.
Interview Details – After the initial emails, sent to many primary investigators, I received an email from one of the junior researchers looking for a research assistant to help with a project. The initial email gave me an idea of what the project was about, so I read about it beforehand to have something to say during the interview. Also, during the interview, there were several background questions regarding the material required knowledge for the project, which I was able to answer. Very down-to-earth atmosphere and carefree interview, just to find someone to help them with their project. Overall good process, but should rely less on marks before choosing someone. Perhaps some more weight on previous experience would help.
