    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly standard. First a telephone screening, then a three person panel interview followed by a several part written test portion, then a second panel interview with the entire team and director. The contact was friendly throughout the process, as was each person I met. The panel team asked interesting questions, some behavioral. Following two interviews, I would have expected some sort of final response, but there was no further contact, not even a boilerplate rejection email.

    Interview

    Actually, it wasn't an interview so much as they solicited me to do it. The interview was easy, I just was honest about my experience. That was how I was able to secure the job. Make sure that you know how to be honest about your skills. This is very important. Also make sure to dress well. Do not look like a slob. It is important to make sure you take care of that.

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at University of Texas at Austin.

    Interview

    Very simple process for me. The professor knew me and asked for me by name. Most professors just wait for assignments to come in randomly and will tell the students they can't request by name. Don't take it personally.

    I submitted a resume, took about a week for them to respond. They call you for an on-the-spot phone interview, but it's not bad. They'll say to come to a two-day training and after that, you'll get the job.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, as this job is mainly for students during the school year
