    Interview Details

    First interview was via Skype. It was not difficult, the person who interviewed me was my further supervisor. I already have passed a first selection based in my skills and acknowledges, so, the interview itself was a simple step. Two persons were interviewing me, my supervisor and another principal investigator, since she would be a future collaborator in other projects.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Children's National Health System in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for a first interview in January. I met with the Department director.
    Two weeks after the first interview I was called in for a second interview. The second interview was not with anybody working with the Department but rather with a consultant.
    I felt in the second interview that the decision had already been made.

    Research Faculty Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.
