    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I met with three people who work for the executive that I would have been assigned to. It was a round robin style of questioning and was somewhat informal and very pleasant. Everyone was very professional and approachable.

    We spoke together for over an hour and I was able to explain my experience, skills and interest in the job as it would tie together nicely with the demands of the position I was applying for.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at UC Davis in November 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview a few days after the job posting closed. You interview with a panel of three people and they as many behavioral questions. I believe that they already have someone internal they want to hire and just interview out side applicants per policy.
