    Scientific Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EMD Serono in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through a staffing agency regarding this assignment. The recruiter thought that I would be a good fit for it based on my resume, so I scheduled a 30-minute phone interview with her. Our conversation went well, and an in-person interview was scheduled for the week after. On the morning of the scheduled interview, I received a call from the recruiter, explaining that the hiring manager wasn't able to make it, and had to reschedule. I readily agreed to that, eager to meet with the manager and her team. When the time came to interview, two friendly administrative assistants from the manager's team showed up first. As they were telling me about the job, and asking questions about my experience, I quickly realized that this position was primarily an administrative support role; I was led to believe it was something more from the position title and my initial chat with the recruiter. The training manager came in next and asked me similar questions. We talked about my last role, which wasn't administrative. At the very end of the interview, the hiring manager showed up - she didn't ask me too many questions, as her team had already done most of the work. I don't fault her for that at all, as it seems like a very busy place. She walked me out at the end, told me they would contact the recruiter about a decision next week. It was a positive experience overall, but I was disappointed that the role wasn't as "scientific" as I thought. My goal is to use my administrative experience as a strong foundation to take on different types of roles.
