    Interview

    Hiring and Interview Processes went by relatively quickly; two weeks or so at the most. Interviews are relatively no trick; there is some wait time between getting hired and getting notified on when to work. It was a relatively relaxed interview, the people there are really nice and they expect a solid interview.

    Negotiation

    This was a student job, nonegotiation

    Graduate Student Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    It's a typical application process of entering a graduate school. We have to prepare GRE and our statement of purpose and personal history statement. After we submit our application, we wait for two months, and then some professors that are interested in our application would schedule interviews with us. They ask questions about my past research and wether I will come to Berkeley if I get admission.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of California Berkeley.

    Interview

    I got an email from the professor asking if I wanted to grade papers for his class and I said sure. It was really just as simple as that, get an A the semester before and you'll get a free job offer. Overall, the job is quite a bit of fun as I can see how the students are doing and I get to review the material.
