    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Twente (Enschede (Netherlands)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    It was rather difficult. 1st stage was the CV and cover screening which took about 1 month. After it i was invited for the personal interview. Nothing special as it was mostly technical. Second stage interview was more difficult. I had face-to-face interview with 3 different professors (one by one) and then i had to give the presentation in front of them. Finally, they wanted me to talk to group members (other PhD students) and give them my opinion about the environment of the group.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly technical. They wanted me to say what i can do and (sometimes) what i cannot.   Answer Question
