    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at MGH in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Emailed resume as response to job posting, heard back two weeks later by phone and email to schedule interview for the following week.

    Interview was at 9 am and started on time. I met with a current research assistant who was very friendly, did not ask much, just for a brief overview of my experience. She told me a little bit about the position.

    Next, met with the lab director. We spoke more in-depth about my experience and the position. He was very approachable, not intimidating at all.

    Last, I met with a post-doc in the lab. She hadn't been given a copy of my CV previously so I gave her a copy. She glanced it over and asked a few questions about various positions, then asked more about my career aspirations. She seemed nice but unprepared for the interview due to miscommunication.

    The process was fairly straight forward. Emailed letter of interest and updated resume. Then phone phone interview and 1 to 1 interview in person. It may have helped that a current research person referred me for the position.
