    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Inria in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had applied for a post-doctoral researcher position in one of the Inria lab, by following their advertisement in dbworld forum. I had contacted the hiring manager by sending my latest resume, research statement and the transcript of my PhD study. Later I was contacted by the manager for an online interview process over skype. The interview went for 2 hours. In the interview I was basically asked questions about my PhD research topic. I was also asked about my understanding about the current project in which I would be hired and about my learnings from projects that I was a part of in the past. Moreover it was a very informal discussion and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    Ils ne voulaient pas sortir du cadre qu'ils avaient défini. Mais si vous avez de bons arguments, j'ai appris de quelqu'un qui l'avait fait qu'il était possible d'obtenir un meilleur salaire si vous étiez assez patient (quelques mois, personnellement je ne pouvais pas attendre aussi longtemps).

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Inria in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Il n'y a pas grand chose à dire sur le processus d'entretien pour cet emploi. La sélection s'est faite selon le CV et les diplômes mais surtout selon les recommandations des superviseurs des stages précédents. Les questions ont davantage porté sur le projet de recherche, les études précédentes et le domaine d'expertise. Globalement, ça a été un bonne expérience, les entretiens ont été organisés sur une journée dans une ambiance très détendue.

    There is not much to say about the interview process for this job. Selection was made based on Resume and Master grades but most importantly based on previous intern supervisor recommendation. The questions were more about research project, previous studies and the domain of expertise. Overall it was a nice experience, the interviews were scheduled in one day in a very relaxed atmosphere.
