    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Stanford School of Medicine (Palo Alto, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied the position through online application system (October 2015). After four weeks, I got a phone interview invitation (November 2015). During the phone interview, the hiring manager ask basic questions and collect more information about candidate's background and experience. After I passed the phone screening, I received an email for the on-site interview. This is one-on-one type of interview with two hiring managers (December 2015). They asked more clinical research technical questions to determine whether the candidate qualify for the position and would be a fit for the position. The total interview time is 1 hour. You need to do a great job matching your professional experience with the position. Be calm and confident is the key. At the beginning of 2016, I received an invitation for the final stage of interview. For this interview, I am one of the two final candidates. I have the opportunity to meet with the entire clinical research group members as well as the medical director for the department. The total interview time is 1.5 hour. At this point, you need to show them your personality fits their group. After one week, I received a call from the hiring manager with oral offer for the position.
