Software Engineering Intern Interview

Software Engineering Intern
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at King's College London in June 2013.

Interview Details – The job was posted in a monthly careers bulletin sent out to the KCL students. It required me to send in a CV and a short cover letter. From this point the recruitment process took only a week. We arranged a Skype interview with the professor who was supervising the project and I was offered a job on the next day.

Interview Question – The questions in the interview were not hard. They were general. The most important part of the interview was a description of past projects I worked on and my view on approaching the project related to the job offer.   Answer Question

Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at King's College London in March 2010.

Interview Details – I would have to say it was an alright interview, but a little too intense for a research job. It consisted of a 30 minute computer competency test in which someone was there in the room timing you and watching you as you completed tasks from this paper that were very confusing. Then, I had to take another test in front of the interview panel directly after showing my phone competency skills to deal with participants. A major pain for the fact that it was research related. I think I was thrown off for the rest of the interview because of all the tests. I think I did well but I didn't get the job after all. I already had a job for the University of London and the interview was quick and painless. This interview was just more intense than it needed to be. My advice is to NOT apply for the Institute of Psychiatry unless you want some people who are too serious about their jobs.

Interview Question – Essentially I had to describe what I would do EN VIVO (part of the telephone test/question) about what I would do if a participant responded negatively to a question or did not what to do it and how would you persuade them without pressure.   Answer Question
