    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at MIT (Cambridge, MA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a phone interview within the month, and was invited up two weeks after that. Throughout the process, the emphasis is on finding out if you know your own strengths and weaknesses. For the former, describe times when you used them; and for the latter, what did you learn from it / how have you improved. Other parts of the interview were professional (ascertaining you had the appropriate background) and personal (hobbies, workplace/area culture) in nature. Included lunch and a tour of the facility.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you were asked to work outside your job description responsibilities.   1 Answer
