I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Stanford School of Medicine (San Juan, PR) in Jun 2022

Interview

Interviewing process went great. The team was very outgoing and it seemed like a very casual conversation. The only bad thing is the response time. The questions were very general.

I applied online. I interviewed at Stanford School of Medicine

Interview

First, I received an email from a recruiter asking for my availability for a phone call. Next, I received the phone call where my resume and experience was discussed as well as the position. For the next part of the process, I completed a one-way interview, where I recorded myself answering several questions.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stanford School of Medicine (Palo Alto, CA) in Mar 2022

Interview

There were four one-on-one interviews with individuals. The first interview was a telephone call with the HR rep for the School of Medicine, then I met with the HR rep for the department on Zoom. Then I met with administrator who I would have reported to on Zoom, and finally I met on Zoom with the faculty member who seemed to have the most influence on who would be hired. The first three interviews focused on my resume and why I wanted the job, and the final interview with the faculty member was focused on my plan for tackling issues in the department. It turns out that there was an inside candidate who was offered the job.
