    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Broad Institute in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was a fairly standard personality test and prior experience background check. To be honest, one of the most pleasant phone interview's I've ever had. The recruiter seemed to have my best interests in mind and was actively seeking to help distribute my resume to parties she thought would be best fit for me. Broad is a challenging company to get through that first initial screen, but once you're through don't fret too much over the first phone interview. Their people are friendly and as long as you're sufficiently prepared you should have a welcoming experience.
