    Interview

    I interviewed with 2 people. They only mentioned one before the interview. I made it through the first interview but was not invited back for the second interview. The people I interviewed with took turns asking questions and are required to right down everything I said. Interview questions were standard questions. They email a couple months later through their computer system that you didn't get the job

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Purdue University.

    Interview

    Mainly talked to the professor who I will be work for in the future. Not a hard interview as long as your have a good record academically and connections that will introduce you to the job opportunity. Since there is teaching involved, for non-English speaker, whose native language is not English, a test for English proficiency is also required before you can take the job.
