Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person – interviewed at Boston University in February 2014.

Interview

Just met with PI to go through resume. Just reviewed the positions and job requirements. Overall, this was not a stressful process. I recommend this job to all students at BU. Be ready to discuss details on resume and previous experience. Also, will have to work on assigned projects. Many students work in the lab which is a benefit for younger students looking for mentors.

Negotiation

Was not able to negotiate.

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Boston University (Boston, MA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    There were 6 different interviews, back to back. Each interview was 30 minutes long, and there were 8 prospective employees being interviewed. There was a series of questions that most of them asked, many being the typical interview questions. This got tiring and repetitive because nearly every interviewer asked the same questions.

    Interview

    The system required me to add in some information. However, I do not have any!!! I got the offer in 2007 when I was out of the USA. I was admitted as a graduate student and along with this research / teaching assistant position. There is no interview and this happens for many graduate schools.
