    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cambridge Innovation Center (Cambridge, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was quickly (within 4 days) contacted by their recruiter to complete the online interview (basically a screening call, but over video). I ended up bypassing that part of the interview because I had a reference from within. I also expressed interest in a position working closely with the CEO, because I had appropriate experience. After expressing interest in the second position, I was immediately asked to come in for an interview a week later. The interview was with the current Assistant to the CEO and their head of talent acquisition. We talked for an hour and discussed my professional experience and how I would contribute to the company. Afterwards, I was guided to another room where I took a character assessment on my personal laptop. Once that was complete, I left. A couple days later, I was contacted and asked to take the character assessment again, because something went wrong with my first test. This made me nervous, but I obviously took the assessment again. The next week I was informed that they would not be continuing the interview process with me as they felt it was not the right fit. I'm concerned that a) I bombed the character assessment because I am terrible at taking tests and b) if I had focused my interest in one position I would have had a more successful interview. I asked for any feedback they could give as I continue with my search and was informed that it is kept confidential - fair enough. Overall, it was a nice experience and I learned to tread lightly and to be thoughtful with my applications, as a general interest in the company may not be the best approach.
