    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UC San Francisco.

    Interview

    Interview was great, very professional, felt very casual. Usually starts off with a skype or phone screen, in my experience it's mostly phone screens first. Then you have an in-person with the recruiter who usually shows you around. Afterwards you either get declined through email, asked for a second round, job offer, or just silence which means you didn't get it.
