Research Associate Interview

Research Associate
Leicester, England (UK)

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Leicester in April 2007.

Interview Details – When the time of the job advertised, I was just graduated from my masters in science. So, I was applied for the job and been short-listed. In my interview panel, there were three people ( two scientists and one departmental manager ) who were nice to me showing around the labs to ease off my nerves. Eventually, my job interview went for 40 mins and i was selected.
