    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Merck (Glasgow, Scotland) in July 2019.

    Interview

    It was quite straight forward. Firstly, I spoke with them on the phone. They asked standard background questions (when you graduated?, what do you do?), after which I have been invited to an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions:
      - Can you tell me a little about yourself?
      - What do you know about the company?
       etc.   Answer Question
