Just simple interview. I do not think Professor ask other people to interview. Just tell me job content and ask me whether I'm willing to do.
- No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clark University (Worcester, MA) in April 2012.
I applied via email and by mail. A co-worker had a connection to get my resume to the hiring manager who was the director of the Graduate school of management. I prepared by learning as much as I could about Clark and about the GSOM office and what they offered. I prepared questions based on the job description. I was told my my friend that they thought I was over qualified and that I would have to convince them that I would stay in the role for some time. I think the reason that I did not get the role is that I am currently interning as a career advisor, and the director did not think I really would be happy with an adminstrative role. The interview was hard, and the director was a former recruiter.

Apply online with a brief questionnaire. Once approved, you are called in for an interview with management and supervisors (full time and student). They ask a few questions, experience, etc. Very little computer experience (Do you know how to use Office? ok) and more customer-service oriented questions.

No negotiating at all.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Clark University (Worcester, MA) in January 2011.
Skype was used to communicate. Most questions are based on my research experience during my graduate and undergraduate career. Specifics on analytical techniques are asked and i walked through a few instruments i used in my research. The whole interview last about 40 mins and the interviewer is very concerned about communication basics in addition to scientific details. Hiring a research assistant who is able to communicate is also of great importance.

Brutal interview staring with department consisting of direct supervisor, and a few others in the same area, followed by an hr visit, then a interview with 20+ people from the entire department
