Graduate Research Assistant Interview

Graduate Research Assistant
Columbia, MO

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Missouri in November 2010.

Interview Details – It depends on the advisor you work under. For me I literally explained what I did as an undergraduate and was offered the position.

Interview Question – Explain what I did as an undergraduate student.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There were no negotiations. Graduate research assistants receive a tuition waiver, health insurance subsidy (albeit the health insurance kind of sucks), and wound up with my monthly salary.
