  1. Industrial Placement Student Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Science and Technology Facilities Council (Oxford, England, England)

    Interview

    There was a 50 minute technical interview, where they first asked me specifics about my relevant discipline (biology), and then went into specific about optics and how they work. The questions started simple, and kept getting more difficult until I didn't know the answers. This was to see how you handle the pressure, and from what I've seen they prefer for you to admit you don't know, than lie and make something up.
    Interview

    Label a plant and animal cell, what are the differences? How does a microscope work? How do you clean an objective?
