    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Leicester (Leicester, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The general atmosphere was politely hostile. The panel was more interested to show off than to understand the real potential of the candidates. I don’t have to say that before starting my interview I assisted to the very warm welcome directed to one of the other candidates (technically not an internal candidate but very well-known to the panel). I don’t want to know who finally got the job, but for me it was a total waste of time. These situations discourage even the most well-intentioned candidates.
