    Average Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Erasmus University (Rotterdam (Netherlands)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Het proces van aannemen hangt voornamelijk van de onderzoeker af, die verantwoordelijk is voor het project. Voor mij was het maar een interview. Het gesprek werd gevolgd door het nodige gekeken van contracten, op het secretariaat van de afdeling.

    The hiring process depends mainly on the researcher that is responsible for the project. In my experience it was only one interview. The interview was followed by the necessary contract signing at the departments secretary's office.
