      Average Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Boston, MA) in Oct 2023


      Willing to work with expected salary. Very respectable and understanding so far. Have hour and 30 min zoom interview scheduled next week. Not looking forward to being on zoom for that long. Would much rather it be in person.
