    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dow (Champaign, IL) in August 2017.

    It is a very general and friendly interview. The interviewers, as mine said, are simply collecting applicant information. Decisions about site interviews will be made back in the Dow company. General questions were asked. And I was given 15-20 min to present my research.

    • A lot of the questions were typical behavioral questions such as, describe what your responsibilities were for X project, what were your ideas as part of your Ph.D thesis work, etc. One other question I thought was helpful, was asking me if I had a desire to be in a certain part of the U.S. if I were to get a job with Dow since they have facilities all over the place.   Answer Question
