Interview Details – I was referred by a friend who worked in a research lab and met with the lab's head directly as a semi-formal interview. She was looking for someone with my exact skill set and this wasn't really a formal interview at all - we talked about science and research and there were very few "interview" questions, other than what my plans were for graduate school.I was offered a temp position that could turn into a benefited spot within a few months.

Interview Details – After applying on UNMJobs, i was called to set up an interview. It's important to be flexible with them in establishing a time, that goes a long way. The interview was done by 2-3 people (I've interviewed for 3 positions at UNM and got all 3). Some positions really screen for certain qualities, and others basically say "this is what the job is, are you sure you want it?"
Interview Question – How do you deal with disrespectful or rude people? Often times faculty can be full of themselves and act as such. What experience do you have with dealing with mean or rude people?
UNM has a database of questions that most employees go off of. It's important to remember that most hiring is done by department directors and department heads, so HR is really not there thing, so they go by an established doctrine for hiring people. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – What negotiation? They only have so much money in their budget for student employment. They will pay you what they have allotte for it, and if you on't like it, go somewhere else, you aren't a real citizen at UNM if you are a student employee.
