    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Interview Details

    New interviewer with experienced predecessor. Generic classic questions you can find online. The interviewer was unsure and looked to the predecessor in questioning. I left the interview without even discussing my qualifications. I would not call this experience a professional one. I have worked in other establishments where talent specific qualities were identified and acknowledged. Here I did not get that feeling at all.
