Graduate Student Interview

Graduate Student
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Georgia Tech in April 2009.

Interview Details – I contacted the professor I was interested in working with by email. Simultaneously I submitted the grad school application to the Prof's department, and specified his name as first choice. A while later (1-2 months) they contacted me to schedule an interview. The interview I met with 4 or 5 profs including my first choice. There were 10-15 other admitted prospective students. It was a pleasant process. My advisor did most of the talking during our meeting time. This was my first interview really so I was not particularly savvy about the questions I asked.

Interview Question – (Incredulously) You've only taken X number of classes in your field of interest??   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not attempt to negotiate. My desire to move out of my parents house overwhelmed my desire to be paid what I'm worth. Furthermore I was paid what everyone else in my position in my dept at Tech was paid, even a bit more.

Advice for future doctoral students: interview multiple profs and go with a big, established lab (full professor)

Director, Research Administration Interview

Director, Research Administration
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Georgia Tech in July 2009.

Interview Details – As a State institution of higher education, Georgia Tech must post openings publicly for at least 30 days, typically on the Institute HR homepage. Everything is submitted electronically. If invited to interview for a director position, there is usually a phone interview first. If the applicant passes to the next stage, he then participates in a face-to-face interview with a group. If he is selected as the finalist, he receives an official offer letter and must respond with an official letter accepting or declining the position. The candidate has the option to call the hiring supervisor to discuss the terms of employment, possible start dates, relocation assistance, benefits, etc. Typically GT will allow some adequate time to relocate and start employment. (Of course, by state law, GT had to perform a criminal background check on me prior to offering me the position, but that is a fairly quick process.)

Interview Question – How have you demonstrated your ability to work independently at a high level of productivity and initiative?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – We successfully negotiated salary, relocate assistance and start date. Georgia Tech salaries are very competitive, particularly for public universities in Georgia.

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Georgia Tech in March 2009.

Interview Details – After applying there is two interviews. The first is a group interview where they ask you to design activities as a team. Here they are really looking at how you work with others. Everyone tries to be a leader, but what really impresses people is letting others lead while still contributing to the team. The second interview is a traditional interview with a Hall Director and a current Peer Leader. Here they go into detail about your leadership experiences and ask what you would do in certain situations on the job

Georgia Tech CRC Facilities Interview

Georgia Tech CRC Facilities

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Georgia Tech.

Interview Details – The hiring process is pretty straightforward. Attend an expo and submit your resume. The interview was tricky but not too challenging. Be yourself and play to your strengths.There are different types of jobs and each of them have their own requirement. They have quite large recruitment pool so little things such as dressing in a suit, well prepped resume etc. will give you an edge as this is for a college position and many candidates don't take it seriously

Interview Question – none   Answer Question

Student Assistant Interview

Student Assistant
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Georgia Tech in August 2012.

Interview Details – I applied as a web developer for one of the labs on campus. It was a very informal interview -- we mostly just talked about very high-level concepts and my past experience. There were not any technical questions, just simple stuff like which operating system did I prefer and why, etc. Very easy interview overall.

Interview Question – What do you hope to accomplish here in your time?   Answer Question
