Positive Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Toronto, ON) in Oct 2020

Interview

The first few minutes consist of meeting the interviewer and getting settled into the interview space. This is also their first impression of you, so it's important to make it a positive one by using good posture, eye contact and a firm handshake. The interviewer generally takes the first several minutes of the interview to tell you about their organization.

Interview Questions
  • The main part of the interview consists of the employer asking you questions and listening to your responses, sometimes taking notes for later reference. Most of the time, this part lasts around 20 minutes.

Interview

This interview was mostly about my experience using a range of relevant wet lab techniques by my direct supervisor; abilities and experience were the most important thing for this interview; boss later said that was all he was looking at in the resumes of applicants but I think this will really depend on your supervisor; interviews more have to do with what your supervisor is looking for and less of what the whole institution is like

Interview Questions
  • Do you have experience with cell culture?
