    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Worcester, MA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Worcester Polytech in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    As a Teaching Assistance at this school, there is no difficulties at all to approach any professors to get hired as a Research Assistance. It is just the matter of which topic you choose and what your background is. I emailed a professor that I was interested in and wrote my intention and my background. Later on he relied and asked to meet. Then we met for about 1 hour and half discussing my previous research experiences and future projects. We were both satisfied after the meeting then I became a Research Assistance.

    Interview Questions
    • No unexpected questions. The whole conversation with the interviewer (later became my advisor) focused on previous research experiences   Answer Question

    I sent an application for graduate school which resulted a phone interview.

A few weeks latter I received an official letter of acceptance as well as my Teaching Assistant scholarship award letter.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, never even a opportunity. But it is graduate school and the teaching assistantship funding is controlled by the upper administration.

    Graduate TA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Worcester, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Worcester Polytech in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Pretty informal. Advisor went over his research and I asked questions. I had to dedicate to his lab in order to get accepted, so at first I wasn't too thrilled since it left me with no other options to explore. But overall, the interview process was not difficult. TA is assigned by department but you can switch with someone if they agree with it. Workload for TAs is pretty high.
