Research Chemist was asked...13 August 2010

Have you ever complained about your advisor? If yes, what was it?

1 Answers

Frankly, it was not the most difficult question, but I was really speechless for a while. Less


I had read a lot in glassdoor and other websites what they usually ask. But I forgot the simplest question to think well about, and that was why I like the specific field of chemistry that I have studied and I want to work in that area. It is a simple question, but believe me, if you never thought about it, in some words that will convince public and scientists, it will be challenging to answer. The second thing I did not expect, and also not read in the interview-reports that I studied so far, was the end part of the interview when they asked me I can ask my questions if I have. I could ask a better and more intelligent question if I had thought about it.

complete disregard of safety measures


There wasn't a specific question that I can recall that was hard, it was the sheer vastness of them (interview was ~3 hours long with the rec. mang.), question after question and suddenly it's about an entirely different subject.

Mondays, I Love a Challenge!!


Questions were usually on previous experiences. But case based questions were hard ones; interviewer will narrate a scenario and we need to explain how we technical face and solve it.
