    My boss interviewed me by phone and Skype. It normally takes a few days after I sent my application. The review process is very informal. Once the phone interview is okay, I was invited to give a presentation to all my colleagues. An offer is then made.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Utrecht (Netherlands)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Universiteit Utrecht (Utrecht (Netherlands)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Zoals gebruikelijk bij de Nederlandse universiteiten, vacatures worden gevuld via een ons-ken-ons old boys network. Omdat men echter wilt doen als of de sollicitatieprocedure open en transparant is, wordt de vacature wereldwijd bekendgemaakt. Naast het feit dat dit hooguit respectloos is richting de hoog gekwalificeerde externe kandidaten, is het ook nog een verspil van belastinggeld omdat men niet probeert om de beste talent in huis te halen. Een blamage voor Nederland.

    Interview Questions

    • Er waren geen lastige vragen gesteld, want men was niet geïnteresseerd in externe kandidaten.   1 Answer
