Interview Answer

1 Answer


I had read his proposal to the SNF, so I knew a bit about the research project already, which impressed him.

I also studied at his alma mater, so we talked about that a bit and transitioned to the fact that I had listed relevant lab courses, as well as experience in data- acquisition & automation that turned out to be advantageous.

Finally, he mentioned that due to the fact of me having applied on short notice, there wouldn't be too much time for going through tests and that he saw that I was qualified anyway, so he gave me the job.
