    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Biogen.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to online posting followed by phone call with HR rep and then in person interviews. Some discussion of interests in the biotechnology industry and also mostly interested in what long term goals were and how Biogen would fit in with those long term goals. Overall pretty easy and straightforward interview process.
