    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lancaster University (Lancaster, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    3 staff in the project interviewed me through skype. I was given a task to solve about a week ahead and I had to present the solution at the beginning of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Somewhere linked from the job advertisement I found a list of criteria they are looking for and how each of those should be assessed, e.g. by documents or interview. And they basically just asked about those criteria that are supposed to be assessed in the interview.   Answer Question
