Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant
Storrs, CT

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at University of Connecticut in February 2010.

Interview Details – Interview Details – Applied online and gave a video interview. Questions at glassdoor. Gave a technical interview few weeks later. Most of the questions are from glassdoor, could not answer 2-3 correctly maybe. I guess if you can not solve a problem you can ask the interviewer for hints and if you are wrong he tries to make you reconsider your answer. After the interview the interviewer asked me to ask questions about the position. Said he will forward my result and I will be hear from them in 2 weeks if they are interested. Checked application status after 10 minutes and found out that I was rejected.

Interview Question – 2. Relationship between determinant of inverse of a matrix and its determinant.

3. If there are 400 people in room, what is the probability that at least 2 people share the same birthday?

4. Impulse to a linear discrete system, x[n] = [1 2 3 5 10]. Input signal frequency = 100Hz, what is the output frequency?
