Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2015.
It was wonderful, at first. I really clicked with the woman who would be my supervisor, and she seemed invested in my success -not just in the interview. Later they just disappeared and I had to do all the work to pursue, despite being told I was the final candidate and they were about to make me an offer. I had two other interviews at the same time that later resulted in offers (one being a prior employer who said, "Name your price.") The nature of the work meant that Ashion was my first choice, but I want an employer to be as excited about me as I am about them, or it won't work for anyone. I am disappointed but the position is a very meaningful important one, and I hope they get a great person who is worthy of the job. The vacancy's ultimate responsibility is to cancer patients and that can't be taken lightly. I wish Ashion the best.
- See above, but generally what I can bring to this position that no one else could. Typical interview questions, but she did ask where I saw myself in five years and what I hadn't done that I still had left to do. Those were insightful. Very positive vibes from the woman who would have been my supervisor. 1 Answer
The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) is a non‐profit biomedical research institute based in Phoenix, Arizona, focused on research that can help patients with cancer, neurological disorders, diabetes and other debilitating conditions. Working with a worldwide network of collaborators in the scientific and medical communities, TGen researchers study the genetic components of both common and complex diseases. Through genomic analysis, we learn how DNA, genes and proteins – the microscopic building block of life – can affect human health. Our 30 lead...
