    After submitting CV online I was contacted by email with a proposed date for an interview. Panel interview with two academics, one HR and one entrepreneur. Interview over 1 hour.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University College Dublin in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took around 2 weeks to organise with HR making several calls to me to re-arrange the date and time of the interview. The interview itself consisted of a panel of 3 people, one of whom was from HR, one of whom was an academic and one of whom was an in admin. They were relatively friendly but not particularly encouraging. It was as if the person had already been chosed and they were simply going through the motions
