    I have been working at Columbia Law School part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a great job for a student looking to gain experience in legal and corporate governance research, as well as gain experience working for one of the best and most exciting professors at Columbia Law.

    Cons

    The hours are not consistent, so if this is your primary source of income it may be taxing. Otherwise, refer to the Pros side.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the exciting work, but perhaps work on giving Research Assistants more consistent project assignments and hours.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Columbia Law School (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring was based on a single interview while I was a student. The position was posted on the school's careers website. Later, after I completed school I offered to continue and they agreed via e-mail and paid me at a slightly higher rate. Since I had done the work for the project before they had few alternatives to hiring me.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. They asked me about why I was interested in the position and I told them i was passionate about it. I demonstrated a solid knowledge of the topic.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate. There was very little funding for the research project and they actually required me to work before telling me my rate. I was looking for a full time job at the time and it was only a part time commitment so I did not complain.
