    Research Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Colchester, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at University of Essex in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Brief 30-45 minutes interview on technical skills and motivation. 2 out of the 3 panel members looked like they have already made their decision from the very beginning of the interview and weren't interested in anything I was saying :-( . Instead the third one was more "alive" and interested in administering a proper interview (challenging questions, some interests for my previous jobs, etc.)
