    Research Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at UMass Medical School (Worcester, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I received an e-mail from the PI asking to arrange an in-person interview. At the interview, I met with the PI and a graduate student from the lab. The conversation was fine, but unfortunately it was clear they hadn't even glanced at my resume. My experience matched the job advertisement perfectly, but when I arrived at the interview the majority of job requirements were no where close to what the job ad described. Based on these new requirements, I was not a good fit for the position. I just wish they had looked at my resume before hand, or offered to talk to me on the phone to save me 4 hours of driving.
