    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eastern Virginia Medical School (Norfolk, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was aggressive because I really wanted this job. I did not just submit my resume and hope for the best. After submitting my application & resume online, I found the phone number of the dept. I would be working for, then found the right person to talk to. I emailed this person, introduces myself and said, "I don't want to be just another resume in the stack on your desk. Please let me interview for the job." If I hadn't done this, I would have been passed over. I was actually told I was selected because I was showing genuine interest in the position and they needed someone they could count on to stay. I got a couple phone calls when they were in the decision making process, one was for invitation to an interview.

    During the interview, there were 3 people interviewing me in a conference room and they all had questions. They were all very friendly, though, and the interview was a breeze. The questions centered around the type of questions all employers have: What are this person's chances of staying? Are we going to hire him/her and then they leave right after we've trained them? What goals/plans do they have for their future? Let's find out about this person's work ethic, we want to make sure we are hiring a solid employee. They basically got a sense of my work ethic, my desire to work for the company, my long-term goals, my past achievements, how I've handled problems at work in the past, how independent can I be since my boss is normally too busy to supervise, etc.

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Eastern Virginia Medical School (Norfolk, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call approximately one month later for an interview. The interview was in two parts - one on one with two staff members and then with the executive (all the same day). The interview was relaxed and fairly informal. I was told that a decision would be made by the beginning of March. I followed up and was told that I would be contacted by phone, email or by mail. I never received anything.

    Discussed salary in person, not much wiggle room because cap is set by Human Resources. I was able to negotiate start date.
