    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National University of Singapore (Singapore (Singapore)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The principal investigator decides if he / she wants to hire you. Once agreed the professor will submit the application form to the faculty office for processing. The application process requires 2 referral letters and the usual documents. After approval the HR side will contact you to do a medical check up at the health center after which you can start work. There can be a lack of communication between the preparation of the contract and the start. Typically they will send it to the professor rather than directly to you.
