    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at University of Central Florida (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    I first sent my resume through the UCF career site.

    It asked me to submit a personal website. I emailed the employers because this was mandatory and I did not know how to respond. They said put something funny if I did not want to share a personal website. I decided to put a cat meme.

    In my interview, they asked me to jog their minds about what I submitted for the link. I reminded them that I put a cat meme. They laughed and remembered that they chose my application in part because of it.

    Their questions were pretty standard:

    What are your strengths, Weaknesses? etc.

    Tell me about your previous relevant experience?

    I had two managers that participated in my interview.

    Negotiation

    They have a range, and you can argue up the range if you have a lot of experience in the same environment. If not, you have little chance to negotiate up the range. There is no possibility outside of the range.
