    Whole day process talking to different staff members and campus partners. For the work that I eventually did, I thought this interview process was overkill. It was not necessary to meet and talk to 18 people for the level of work I did.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    UX Designer interview was done in two part, with one with the hiring manager and UX Designer and the second with the team. I was approached and asked to interview for this position. The position, was later cancelled due to the team not being able to reach a consensus on which candidate to bring onto the team. Unfortunately, this seems to be a common practice as several positions that I was asked to interview on different teams, they ended up canceling the position, because of team conflict during the hiring process of a new team member.
