    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Howard Hughes Medical Institute (United States)

    Interview

    This was by far the most professional interview I've had for a research assistant position. The hiring manager did ask me questions about times that I had failed or succeeded, and several more nitty gritty questions than were otherwise asked when I have interviewed with PIs
    Interview

    Tell me about a time that your experiment or assay failed- how did you deal with that?
