The process took a dayinterviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA) in April 2011.


Came into professors office, no formal questions were asked. Chatted about myself and my knowledge of the markets. After showing I was a friendly, normal human, capable of conversing, and slightly educated, I was offered the position on the spot. Professor just wanted to make sure I could complete the research.

No negotiation, hourly rate is set. Varies depending on experience and there are different student rate levels, the position I was applying for was level four. Weekly hours vary depending on amount of research necessary but usually ranged from eight hours to 15 hours a week, and never more. Negotiation wasn't part of the equation, I accepted the position and was given a rate to be paid.
