    I submitted a research statement and cv. I was called for a phone interview, then offered a job. I followed up by speaking with current lab members to make sure the lab would be a good fit before accepting. I was surprised that the department didn't require an in person interview or a research presentation before offering the position.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were unexpected or necessarily difficult. They pertained mostly to my research experience, and the direction my research program was going.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Urbana, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview wasn't intense. They will call to make sure if you are still interested after they extend the internship offer. At which time they will ask if you have any questions you need answers and the like. It's not much of an interview per se.

    So when you talk to them be entirely sure as to the intern position you applied for is the one you are really interested to work on. If you are accepting this internship just to add one more internship on your resume you will be miserable for all ten weeks as they expect you to know what you're doing. The error of margin is very low.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Payment is fixed you can't negotiate. However, if your travel to the campus cost more than $500 you might want to ask for more and get some more for the travel allowance. But this rarely happens as they only refund up to $500 of your travel expenses.
