    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Michigan Technological University (Ann Arbor, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview from Texas, very easy and helpful. Asked about basic skills and availability. Was offered the job later than they said they would, but I accepted anyway. This was an interview for a position at their research institute in Ann Arbor, MI. No tricky questions were asked. Mostly just a skill review and confirmation of availability which was crucial for them because they were already behind on the project I was being hired for.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Michigan Technological University (Houghton, MI) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Three people asked questions about my experience. The questions were generally pretty straight-forward. Each person sat at a table around the room in a classroom in the library. They understood that you were a student and probably did not have a lot of experience as a student consultant/IT help desk person. They asked why you wanted the job and what experience you have helping people with technology.
