I interviewed at Cornell University

Interview

The interview process took a very long time, multiple interviews and a very slow communication in between interviews. The interviewers were nice folks overall and given the challenging times I understand the delay but it was still hard to wait through the process.

I interviewed at Cornell University

Interview

I sent the resume and cover letter to the recruiter. The recruiter was very dismissive and couldn't explain clearly the recruiting processes clearly. It seems that they already have a person in mind even before posting the JD.
