    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DuPont (Wilmington, DE) in May 2015.

    The interview process was tough with two sessions of three interviewers. They asked good situational questions to get you thinking about your prior laboratory experiences. It was a great experience to get to know some of the staff. There is not much you can prepare for, it is all based on your experience.
