    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Renewable Energy Lab.

    Interview

    They did not call me even after telling me that I am being considered for the Job. After 2 weeks I shot an email that I have sent an email stating the appointment time and the recruiter wants the interview the same day. So it was strange for me, we were in different time zone and she did not even told me that which time zone she was talking about. Anyway I got a call in the middle of my work and I was told that I am not telling a story of my 8 year old research, Oh Well I am not GARRISON KEELER. I am here to tell you about the research not my story. but It was awkward because she was a not technical person and I did not know what she got or what she did not. It could have been a lot better if I was talking to somebody from the science background.
