    Interview Details

    It can be a long process. First you should go to their web site and find a "sponsor." There will be research descriptions for available sponsors. DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST. Pick one that will be a good mutally fit. The work should sound interesting to you and your skills should align with thier goals. Next, contact the sponsor and if they have mutual interest you put together a proposal. The proposal is then graded and if you get a high enough score you are selected.

    Interview Questions
    • The proposal review is a blind review. It is hard to predict what will get a good or bad score, but be sure that everything is in the proper format.   Answer Question

    Research Support and Applications Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at National Research Council Canada in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position in Feb., the interview took place in June. It was done via video conference using ooVoo software. There were four people from NRC: 1 HR, the hiring manager and 2 would be co-workers. It was a behavioural interview: they took turns asking questions. They would not elaborate on any question. I could answer it however I wanted, but they would not engage in any kind of dialog about the question or my answer. When I said my answer was complete, they went to the next question.

    The email I received from the HR person said up front that it would be a behavioural interview and recommended that I prepare. Very good advice. But no indication of how to go about it. Google is your friend. Don't just read the sample questions you find. Select a broad sample of them and actually _write_ out your answers. This will force you to clarify your thinking.
