    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin Foundation (Madison, WI) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the Prospect Research Manager for a 30-45 minute phone interview. After approximately two weeks, I was contacted by the manager again to setup an on-site interview with the manager and his supervisor. That interview consisted of questions along with a short case study. The case study was an article where they asked what data you would add to their system. That interview lasted one hour. The offices are an open concept without cubicles. During email correspondence, the manager said the starting salary range is $32,000 to $40,000.
