    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UC San Francisco (San Francisco, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was finally called about 3 months after submitting applications to several different departments. Hopefully, I will be able to move forward in the hiring process, but there are a lot of other candidates being interviewed as well, I was told.
