Difficult Interview

Graduate Research Assistant Interview

Graduate Research Assistant

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at North Carolina State University in May 2010.

Interview Details – The interview was with four faculty on the search committee. The individuals were very tense, which made the interview itself very uncomfortable. I was asked questions about my current and future research interests, what faculty's research I might be able to contribute to, and why I was interested in NC State over other universities.
