    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Trinity College Dublin (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    There was an original phone screen. As the position was for a call centre, they sensibly began by testing your phone manner. You were asked to complete a pretend call using the script provided. After this, there was a group interview with four or five students, conducted by the supervising manager and another manager. It was quite friendly and relaxed.

    Easy Interview

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Trinity College Dublin (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in August 2014.

    Directly contacted various academic staff about availability of funding. I sent an email to one professor who forwarded it to another who seemed interested in my skills.

    Organised a meeting to discuss the University and the projects available. I met up with the hiring professor directly and he had a discussion with me about the position he was looking to fill.

    Informally spoke about my previous work and what I was looking for in a PhD position.

    Was invited to apply for a PhD position and applied online.

    The online application was successful and I started within two months of the initial discussion.
