    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Calgary (Calgary, AB) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I actually applied to the job several months before I was called for an interview. They had to get funding approved, so there was a bit of a delay. I first met with my interviewer(s), for an initial screening, and it was a very pleasant experience. It was more of a conversation than anything else.

    After the screening interview, I received a phone interview from the Department head a week later. I was formally offered employment approximately a week and a half later.

    The overall process was relatively simple and straight forward.
