    The interview went well, it was more on finding the right person that can approach the internet of things. It was done at the industrial partner site and the whole process was just about finding the right person fit the description of the ktp associate. Didnt even have a reply of not getting the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cranfield University (Cranfield, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied through the online website Newscientistjobs.co.uk and got a call for the interview within 4 weeks. Cranfield University had sent a cab to pick me up from the MK train station as the University is 7-8 miles from the Milton Keynes (MK). Interview panel gave a warm welcome and the whole process of question and answer was more of a conversation rather than a regorous torture. Mostly the question was related to my MSc and the Projects I waroked on during the Masters. My interview panle included three faculty members from the department and I was given the offer just after the interview.

    Interview

    I just sent an email with my CV to a professor that was doing research in a field i was interested in. The same day he answered telling me that my CV was good and I was welcome to do an internship. Then I had to fill out a form mentioning the professor as my tutor and send it back, and from there on it was just bureaucracy to obtain admission.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cranfield University (Cranfield, England (UK)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    It was too simple, I had to submit my personal thoughts and a research proposal through a standard online form. Then I was called to defend every single point. The interviewer was very keen to discuss any possible extension. Although the role was described in great detail, in reality the actual requirements and the evolution was a bit vague.
