    I was contacted via email by the HR department at the business school after I applied for the position via the Cornell University jobs website. I was interviewed by phone first by the director, and then contacted to come in for an in-person interview. They put me up in a hotel and I was interviewed by a total of 6 people ranging from Vice Provost down to the Associate Director with whom I work on a team. All in all, the in-person interviews took about an hour and a half and all took place in the same location.

    Interview

    It was OK. There was no pressure, no difficult questions to answer. Friendly interviewer and good environment. Not very personal questions. They expect that you tell about your academic background, if it is strong in a specific research area, better for you.
