    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on the Novarits Career website and within a week I received an email from an administrative assistant asking if u was still interested in the position and for possible times I would be available to come in for an interview. I replied and received an email with an interview schedule. My interview was 2 hours long and I was interviewed by the hiring manager,the lab director, an HR rep, and several lab members. Questions were generally about my previous research and work experience, and a few about my intended goals with the company. I had very few of the typical interview questions asked, except by the HR rep, who asked a couple. A few days after my interview I was contacted by HR and told there was a positive response to my interview. and was given a verbal offer from the director of the lab.
