    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at National Library of Medicine.

    Interview

    Both interviews were on Skype. Pleasant enough people. The first interview was harder than the second. Behavioral questions the first interview and open discussion the second. They asked vague questions in the second interview and I was not sure what they wanted. I gave them plenty of leads to show I knew the topic, but I guess that is not what they were looking for. One person in the second interview never said anything past hello. The rest of the time she took notes while the men talked. Way to keep women in the 50s, NLM!

    Interview Questions

    • The job description that I applied for was not the same I interviewed for. I was not told this until the interview, which I found completely unhelpful and unexpected.   Answer Question
