Interview Details – I applied for a contract position with the possibility of revolving the contract. The initial position was for 9 months and this is my third year with the company. There is a shortage of highly qualified researchers in the area and therefore the company tends to keep good talents. The interview process was easier comparing to my other interviews. I did not present my PhD thesis and other projects to the group. Instead everyone int the group talked with me about my background and my expectation from the job.

Negotiation Details – The negotiation was very intense since I was applying as a contractor. There are no benefits for the contractors therefore the only option for negotiation was the hourly rate.
