    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter/ administrative assistant on the phone for some basic questions such as "what are your 3 best skills". Interviewed in person with head of department and then had an informal interview with person who was leaving that role.
