    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at California Department of Public Health in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    In the conference room, there are 5 people interviewed me. 3 were from CaREDIE, and 2 were from CDPH. They have a total of 15 questions to ask me, and they wrote down my answers right next to each question. Most of the time, they listened to me and took notes. The whole interview process took us about 45 minutes. All the questions are general questions. They wan to know how your skills are related to their position; why do you think you are the best candidate; how do you manage a project, if you have limited resources to complete a project with a hard deadline;. if you have resources with a soft deadline, how do you accomplish your project; if your supervisor is unavailable and you encountered some uncertainties with the project, what would you do; explain your experience in data management and data mining; explain your experience in geographic information; besides STATA, what kind of analytic software you use.
