    Interview

    Case Interview. I was given a random case, and I had to analyze it as detailedly as possible. It was quite challenging for candidates without previous experience because it requires intuition of market and tight logic.

    Interview

    I work at the Campus University Libraries and the hiring and interview process was great! I submitted my application on the online UIUC library website, filled out the questions, and chose my library preferences. I then went into each of the libraries with my resume and availability and asked if there positions available for the upcoming semester. I then got a response quickly and was basically hired on the spot with minimal interview questions. I would say the best way to get this job is by being persistent and asking at the right time.

    Interview

    This was an internally created position and the requirements were written so I was to be the most likely candidate for the job. I had one interview by my current supervisor. The position had to be publicly advertised so now you know how some things work in the world of academia.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    Interview

    This review is for the Applied Research Institute (ARI), a new entity within the College of Engineering. I applied online through UIUC's job website and received an email invitation to a webcam interview within a few weeks. A day after the webcam interview, I was invited to interview on campus, although it took a month to find a common date that satisfied everybody's schedule. It was a standard PhD research interview: meet one-on-one with some faculty and research scientists, and give a seminar presentation on my past and current research (although in this case it was an informal presentation with no guidelines for length). I received the offer about a month after the interview. Again, this is just for ARI so it might not be representative of the university's other departments, but other than the somewhat slow process, the experience was positive.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard interview questions with nothing particularly difficult.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, standard relocation allowance for research staff of $5000.
