    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Stanford University in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was a very low stress process, however this is very specific to the area of the school I work in (and those I now work under). There was pressure on their end to hire someone and the process was quick. I had a short phone interview that led to an in person interview, 1:1 with 2 separate supervisors. It was a casual discussion about abilities, interests, and needs.

    Interview Questions
    • No question was unexpected or difficult, all within my realm of experience and non-specific.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Essentially the position was offered as a non-negotiable salary due to budget constraints. I have found out that the employee I replaced was payed significantly more. I have not, and do not intend to, push on this front.
