    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Iowa State University (Ames, IA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very casual. This is a University position so there is a wonderful culture of allowing students the opportunity to work and gain experience while rejecting as few people as possible. The interview consisted essentially of a job description, and the hiring manager asking if it would be something you're interested in. It would be helpful to take the mosquito surveillance laboratory.
