    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Merck (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Dinner the night before the interview day attended by 3 scientists from the company. Research seminar first thing in the morning followed by a series of 1 on 1 meetings. I was asked a few questions about my research from each person and had the opportunity to ask them questions as well.
