Clinical Research Coordinator I Interview

Clinical Research Coordinator I

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Children's National Health System.

Interview Details – Applied for the Clinical Research Coordinator I position early June and Heard back via email about a month later. They asked for additional information which I provided. 2 weeks later they emailed back asking for a phone interview and a week after I had a phone interview that was brief. I still haven't heard back; I did follow up and they said they are still making the decision.

Interview Question – Most the questions were about my related experience. No behavioral questions during the phone interview.   Answer Question

Research Faculty Interview

Research Faculty

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Children's National Health System.

Interview Details – I submitted my initial application online, and didn't hear anything for several weeks. I was then asked to submit a CV. I had a telephone interview, and was invited to visit twice. The first was a full-day visit with half a dozen one-hour interviews and a 60 minute job talk/research seminar. The second visit was a half day visit, where I was introduced to most of the VIPs. I appreciated very much the fact that so many important people made themselves available to meet with we.

Interview Question – Interview questions were not difficult. Most of the questions revolved around my past experiences and technical skills.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The verbal salary agreement that I came to with my chief was not honored by HR. Naturally, I was disappointed. I ultimately decided that the final offer was still acceptable - it just started me off on a bit of a down note - which is unfortunate because the difference in salary was fairly trivial in the grand scheme.
