    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of 2 Skype interviews within the period of a week. I interview with my direct supervisors and had no contact with HR during the interview phase. As such the questions were based on my experience in the field and my skillet. There were none of the typical HR styled hypothetical questions. It was a very straightforward interview process. It was about 2 weeks from the last interview to me receiving the offer. Work atmosphere is a good blend of private and public sector attitudes making it work with a good pace but with out the feeling of needless paper-pushing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern University in April 2008.

    Interview

    Had an initial interview with PI who was screening multiple candidates, was then called back for a final interview where I was offered the job. I was asked questions about previous job skills that I had acquired that related to the job I was interviewing for. Nothing challenging or off the wall.
