    I worked at MIT full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment for research and learning. Depends on PI. In my case, PI supported education as well.

    Cons

    Some PIs are too busy. People who work independently will take more benefit.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MIT (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    There is a brief training period and a few meetings with management. The interview process isn't overly rigorous if you have a good attitude and demonstrate a willingness to learn the tour content.

    Interview Questions

    • Shadow a current tour guide then give a practice tour of your own after completing a test demonstrating proficiency of campus / tour guide knowledge.   Answer Question
