    Na het invullen van het webformulier werd ik eerst gebeld door een recruiter voor vragen over mijn CV. Daarna volgde een officiele uitnodiging voor een gesprek.

    Brief phone interview with hiring manager followed by a half-day onsite interview where I met with around 10 different employees ranging from hiring managers to Scientists and had lunch. I was asked to give a detailed description of my current thesis work and a variety of typical interview questions, everyone was extremely friendly which made the process less nerve-racking.
