    Interview Questions

    • I was surprised to be asked whether I wished to work part time for a full time job posting. I was also taken aback by the bored PI. It seemed he phoned me because he had to. Finally it was most unexpected to be phoned on my mobile out of the blue.   1 Answer

    Interview

    After many months of applying to jobs anywhere and everywhere I recieved a call from a department at UT that I hadn't even applied to. It turns out they kept my resume in circulation and eventually it found a place. The process from there was pretty quick and easy. 1 phone interview, on in person interview and I was working the next week. It was a bit sobering that they posted the position AFTER offering me the job, which means most of the opportunities that you see from the outside aren't really there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Texas at Austin.

    Interview

    Was a quick and very straightforward process overall. They got back to me after sending in my resume within a week and scheduled the interview within a month of me sending them my initial application. This was all in line with the time-frame described in the initial job posting and easy to go through. The interview itself was actually quite short and acted mostly to confirm and expand upon my previous experiences listed in my resume. The interviewers were also my soon to be bosses which helped me understand what would be expected of me for the job instead of just having a person with little connection to the day to day work from HR doing the interview which can be all too common nowadays.

    Interview Questions

    • Asking what I wanted to get out of this job and what they could do to help me attain those goals.   Answer Question

    Interview

    The initial process went fairly smoothly overall two interviews with the same person, first on the phone and then via Skype since I was not in the area. II received notice the job had been canceled around the same time I was supposed to hear back whether I had got the position or not and received a vague email from the administrative assistant, I saw it was re-posted the next day and when I emailed my interviewer received a one sentence response with no real explanation, only that they were still in the process of screening candidates.
