    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Boston University in June 2014.

    Interview

    I received an employee referral for this position at the ERC/CCD and interviewed over the phone during the summer. The phone interview was more of a screening, just getting to know my personality and how I work in a team environment. I previously worked at BU in two other departments so it wasn't as formal as other interviews might be.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston University.

    Interview

    Very laid back and pleasant experience. Hiring manager was very professional. Received call from hiring manager as opposed to HR, went through three rounds of interviews. One interview was a panel of approximately six people, with whom the individual in the position would have regular contact. Questions were mostly about background experience and what I would bring to the position. Overall a great group of people.
