    Research Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University College London (London, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Application process took 4 weeks total.

    I applied through the website and I was called back for an interview a couple of weeks later, saying there is no need for me to prepare anything (eg. presentation).

    At 5pm the day before the interview, I get an email saying that I will have to do a computer-based analysis test right before the interview. I suppose they wanted me to do no specific prep, but it was a bit cheeky to give me half a day's notice.

    The test wasn't too hard anyway (excel based) and was followed by a 20 minute interview (3 people panel). I was asked questions about my previous research projects, about the current vacancy and about how I'd respond to certain job-related situations.

    I was told I would get an answer within a week. I got an email around 10-14 days later, saying that I didn't get the job.

    Regardless, the atmosphere was quite relaxed and the panel wasn't too intimidating.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions relating to participants for the current project, how I would act in recruiting and testing phases   Answer Question
