    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at University of Florida.

    Interview Details

    I contacted this particular principle investigator through an annual scientific conference. They had a process to connect soon-to-be graduates with prospective employers. After returning home (I still had to defend my thesis) the employer invited me to come visit his his lab and the University. He paid all expenses. We seemed to get on well and he was very excited about the prospect of my coming to work there. he made it clear I was the top candidate. In short, he promised me the moon. It all sounded very good, but i had a tiny voice in my head telling he might be crazy. Against my better instincts, I took the job, moved myself and my family and proceeded to live in 2 years of hell. I was young and naive. the most I took away from this position was the ability to deal with extremely difficult people. He was a very intelligent and technically skillful man and I did learn a lot from him, but in the end, it was a miserable experience.

    The process a fast especially several people applied to the position. For this particular process, I applied and one week later I received a phone call for an interview. The interview was with the hiring manager, and I was able to get a sense of the hiring manager along with the team. The culture for higher education is different from private sector, but I did get a sense of the team I will be working with and I was looking forward to it. The hiring manager was very friend and really made me felt at ease.

    Apply through the O'Connell website . After some time they'll shortlist you from your submitted resume and schedule an interview. One round interview process and it is very easy to get through it as the questions are normal behavioral ones. Always mention things like customer satisfaction and exceeding expectation kind of stuff on your resume or description.

    Negotiate your pay. They have a flexible range. Way easier to ask for higher pay to start now than it is to ask for raises later.
