    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Southern California.

    Interview

    The process was straightforward but because of the nature of the university power structure, took some time for final decision to be made. I first had a phone interview with the department business officer. That was followed by a phone interview with the manager of the department I was applying for. Then an in-person interview with the business officer and finally a series of interviews with the managers involved in the hiring.

    Student Services Advisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Southern California.

    Interview

    The process is quite slow, it takes weeks. I think it took at least 3 weeks for me to hear back about the application itself. I first received an email about a phone screen and then after that it was a virtual interview with 3 of the other advisors. The next round was an on-campus interview. I appreciated that they were very transparent with their timeline.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Southern California (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    My friend introduced me to the research team. When I came in, I talked with the graduate researcher and sat through a research meeting. At the end I wrote my email in the sign in sheet. A week later, the lead professor tells me that he saw my email listed on the sign in sheet. I tell him I was simply a visiting student. He then told me if I wanted to join the team and to send me the resume. Suddenly I was on the research team under a famous Biomedical Engineering professor of USC.

    Interview

    The job title and interview questions made this appear as if it was a senior level position for an experienced professional, however the salary offered at the end of the interview process was not commensurate with the level of experience that a senior professional in this field would expect.

    Interview

    Short interview just for your supervisor to get to know you and see if you would work well with everyone else at the library. I think what matters the most about this is that you should appear as someone who gets along with other students since that's who you'll be working with most of the time.
