    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

    Interview

    Very standard interview process. Phone interview, two rounds of onsite interview, and then wait. Ask regular questions about the basic requirements and things you put on your resume.

    Interview Questions

    • I applied to several different labs and they are all different. Basically most of them want to use you as a post-doc rather than an RA, so they might ask are you willing to work over-time blablabla, can you work independently etc.etc. I chose the one that didn't ask such questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    What were you able to negotiate? What advice would you give others considering an offer?

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The process is very simple. You fill out the application and attend the orientation. Bear in mind that orientations are only offered about 6-7 times in a year and you need to get recommendations from a professor or a professional colleague as well. At the orientation, you hand in the application materials and learn more about the program. It is a great opportunity to learn more about medicine. After the orientation, you wait a week for your name to be placed in the system and then you pickup your ID badge and can begin to volunteer.
