    Interview

    I simply submitted my resume through GURU and received an email from the graduate student. He asked for a simple meet and greet. I was not expecting a full interview. He went through each and every line of my resume and asked me to explain each role and how I can apply those skills to the new position.

    Interview

    During office hours, He asked if I would like to do research with him because I was getting really great grades in his class. There really wasn't much to it other than that. I don't think that I would've gotten the offer though if I had just been preforming at an average level.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin in March 2014.

    Interview

    I first obtained an email, which was a few days after finishing an online application. I then was offered the internship position, and spoke with someone. it was not very formal, and it makes sense since it was only for the summer and meant to give an undergrad research experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I got this job by a stroke of luck, really. I don't know if I could repeat the process and get the job again, if I were in the same situation today. Our departmental advisor sent out an email requesting a student for a vague job, I responded, the graduate student contacted me, and we talked for about 10 minutes and he hired me.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin.

    Interview

    Quick interview reviewing the previous papers written by the lab to make sure that you understand the goals of the lab. We spent about 20 minutes talking about the actual lab work and 40 minutes chit-chatting. Overall the interview was easy, but the work was challenging and fun. This could easily vary depending on who your supervisor is so prepare accordingly.
