    Brief interview. Was asked about my experience in teaching; why I like to teach and all that jazz. I went in with almost no experience in teaching. I had made some YouTube videos in Physics and Math earlier but tutoring is a completely new thing for me. You don't need much experience. Just make sure you have an interest in teaching and you shall do the interview well. Also, grades do matter - get a good grade.

    Web Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Urbana, IL).

    Interview

    It took 2 months for me to get an interview. The interview process and questions were easy. This is good and bad. It's good if you're not good at interviews, but know what you're doing. Then for a tech position, it should be easy to answer the questions, which they seem to care about more than the behavioral ones. It's bad because they could end up hiring someone incompetent.

    You interview with a committee. Typically, a third of the members will know specifics about your position. The rest will be from other departments/positions on campus. Usually after the position closes, they will review all applications and decide to interview the top 3-5 candidates. The committee has a list of pre-defined questions that they'll ask every candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? What is one advantage and one disadvantage for using tables in HTML?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    If you're hired under a grant, then the salary is usually non-negotiable.
