Student Assistant Interview

Student Assistant
Atlanta, GA

I interviewed at Georgia Tech in September 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process to become a student assistant was very informal. Student assistants are tasked with menial duties like copying, scanning, answering phones and emails, and many other tasks that may pop up anytime. The interview merely consisted of the Associate Director asking me questions about my international experience, office experience, language proficiency, and availability. It was very informal and easy.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions.   Answer Question

Research Technician Interview

Research Technician

I applied online - interviewed at Georgia Tech in April 2010.

Interview Details – Since I was still in college at the time of the interview, mine took place via phone. It was easy to coordinate and took no more than 30 minutes. I was asked the typical questions ("What qualifies you for this position?", "Why are you interested in this position?", "What do you plan to do with the skills you gain from this position?") and was pleased to discuss compensation immediately. Overall, it was a great interview experience.

Interview Question – In my cover letter, I mentioned that I had already applied to graduate school, but was deferring accepting an offer due to concerns about my career goals. Obviously, I was asked about this - but honesty (that I wanted to discover if research was my calling before committing to a graduate program) landed me the job, and my boss' respect.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation took place at the time of the interview - I was given a month to move to Atlanta, find an apartment, and get settled before starting my job. I was given opportunities to advance and improve my title (and salary) within a year.

Post Doctoral Fellow Interview

Post Doctoral Fellow

I applied online - interviewed at Georgia Tech in April 2010.

Interview Details – Simple enough interview process. This is especially true for postdocs. It was conducted over teleconference and phone. This can often be a reasonable way to gauge a lab you want to join, but pay special attention to what the existing lab personnel say.

Interview Question – There was nothing that difficult or unexpected. The salary offer made was unexpectedly low though.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Georgia Tech in January 2009.
