    Centre Administrator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Imperial College London (Paddington, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a panel of two academics from the centre. It was held in a quite daunting room, very large with an oversized table and big windows behind them so it was uncomfortably bright. They asked questions and would 'jump' on keywords, cutting off the answer I was given. It was an overall average experience, the nicest person was the HR lady who actually shared a pleasant conversation with me.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle blunt academics?   Answer Question
    • How do you convey the meaning of a report to someone that clearly hasn't read it?   Answer Question
