    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    • 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
