Research Assistant III Interview

Research Assistant III
Cambridge, MA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Harvard University in July 2011.

Interview Details – Had interned with the research group before interviewing for a full-time position, so I already knew the individuals I was interviewing with. Usually, though, a departmental HR rep will call you for a brief phone screening before an in-person interview, thus why I marked it as part of the interview. It was a pretty casual process, four 30-minute interviews, one with each researcher within the department. Each asked me about my previous experience with their department and in policy research, then asked about my career goals and how I saw this position fitting in with them. Very straight-forward.

Interview Question – How does this research position fit in with your long-term career goals?   Answer Question
