Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, NC) in July 2011.

Interview

It started with a Phone interview, and then two in person interviews. I was very nervous, so it is hard to remember exactly what happened. But I came prepared with print outs of my resume and cover letter, and a few journal articles written by the PI. After getting the job I was told that this impressed them. I also took notes during the interview, which they later also said made me different from other candidates.
