    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Houston (Houston, TX) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is essentially a formality. Hiring decision are made prior to actually meeting anyone, and are based on publication record, references, and personal connections. Research cares little for personality traits, like extroversion or even ambition. All they want is a proficient worker who doesn't mind the tedium of lab work. You could be full blown Autistic and it wouldn't matter. Anyway, the important thing is to have personal connections with whoever is running the lab. If you're on good terms with him or her, you'll probably get the job. It was important to speak honestly about you abilities, but not be hesitant to state that you are good at something.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you keep doing what you did in the previous lab you worked in?
      How long will it take before you're ready to start?
      When can you have this project completed by?   Answer Question
