    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)).

    Interview

    1. Online programming test. Five questions to answer, the difficulty is low for people with basic algorithmic backgrounds, and you should have enough time to finish the test.

    2. Two to one first-round interview. The atmosphere is okay but should ask more relevant questions.

    3. Second-round interview with three people. I need to present one programming project I have done before. One of them is a professor, the professor didn't really quite focus on the presentation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    There were a panel of four female interviewers. They asked me to introduce myself, asked about my previous experience and tested my English and Mandarin. Questions were fairly simple but I felt they seemed very surprised that I am interested in this position, or clinical research in general. Some questions were asked in a tone which made me feel like I was being interrogated.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you interested in clinical research?
      What can you do after gaining experience from us?
