Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in January 2010.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from a HR person about my resume which I had submitted almost 3 months earlier. I was asked a few simple questions about my academic experience and career goals and why I was interested in working there. Then I was asked to come in to an interview in person at the HR department. Again, simple questions about my college experience and career goals. The HR person then said they would see if any research managers had needs that fit my interests. Overall the interview was easy, though very vague as I wasn't actually speaking with a person I would be working with.

Interview Question – Why did you chose to go to your college? Why did you chose your major?   Answer Question
