    I was asked questions about the kind of research experience I previously had. I was interviewing in the crop and soil sciences department, so I was also asked if i had any previous experience with plants. I had a strong chemical background, which fit the needs of their project well. I was shown around the office. The interview did not take long at all.

    Interview Details

    Emailed for information, was contacted by the professor, professor was out of town so met with lab manager, discussed prior experience, was given a lab tour, and started the following week. People were great, everyone was welcoming and had a good sense of humor. Easiest thing I've ever interviewed for.
