Research Analyst Interview

Research Analyst

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at SRI International.

Interview Details – The process was very smooth and team-oriented. I could tell that much attention was paid to transparency, efficiency, and communication with me as a prospective employee. As part of the in-person interview, I was provided with a short walking tour of the campus, which helped me to get a sense of the work environment and culture outside of the structured interview setting.

Interview Question – Nothing too difficult. There was interest in specific examples of transferable skills from former work experience.   Answer Question
