The interviewee then talked about potential future projects, and asked questions and future plans for the projects.

    Interview Details

    It's standard interview process for researchers in industrial research labs and academia. The interview lasts a full day: you come in to meet HR personnel first, and the higher management. Then you give a 1.5-hour presentation of your past research. After that you have lunch with members on the team and in the lab. You'll meet with team members one-by-one. They sometimes bring the candidate for dinner and call it a day.

    Interview Questions
    • During the job talk, be prepared to answer questions on any part on your slides. Don't just put something that looks good but you have little idea about.   Answer Question

    Emailed a cover letter and resume to fellow alum regarding posted position, and was contacted a few days later by HR to set-up an initial phone interview with them.
