    After a brief phone interview, I was invited for an interview at their HQ where I met both my supervisor and the department head. The questions were direct and related to the opportunity I had applied for. My interviewers had a good rapport and were not malicious in their questions.
    They were also very open to discussing the PROs and CONs of the role and company as a whole.

    easy and just one call. It is very easy if your university has some connections with this company and there is not a lot of opening position to the public specially online. They usually directly sent some project emails to the friendly university and college. You can only pick up some opportunities by chance.
