Would you be interested in a different position than one you are interviewing for right now?

1 Answer

Depends on the position..(I did understand why they asked me at that time, but it wasn't expected..)

Why did you decide to pursue a career in industry as opposed to academia?

Mostly situational questions.

1 Answer

I was not prepared when they mentioned that the position would require very little creativity, i.e no thought or scientific expertise, just grunt work.

1 Answer

Describe a situation in which you did not meet your immediate managers expectations.

Asked me to give an example of a time me and my supervisor disagreed about how to proceed with something and how we resolved the issue.

1 Answer

Most questions were based on resume. One of the mangers asked me to explain the technology I would be working with. I was able to explain 75% confidently and kind of stumbled around the end. Was able to describe different ways the technology is employed 100%. That was the only part of the interview I really had trouble with.

Explain some of the experiences you've had with science related work.
