Tired and Busy

I ran participants today, back to back with a bunch of RAs. This always exhausts me. Tomorrow is all day meetings to figure out a game plan for the summer. Then Wed is job interview morning. I'm pretty sure I'm going to take the call in my office (need to run participants in the afternoon). Nobody else will be around as they call come in really late.

The good news about the crazy schedule is no time to obsess about the interview. I'm going to spend some time tomorrow going through their website and writing out questions that I want to ask them. It's been a long time since I've interviewed for a real job? Any questions that you think one should ask at every interview, I'd love to hear suggestions?

Good luck with the interview! Unfortunately I don't have any advice but I hope it goes well.

Good luck with the interview. Other than the usual job questions, the only other major thing for me would be their benefits package.

Good luck! I don't know much but I've heard sometimes they ask you what project you would like to do while you are there (but I don't know if this applies to this type of place, maybe you are assigned a project?); where do you see yourself a few years? stuff like that? I don't know, just ideas.

Thanks Everyone.

DiDi- thanks for the well wishes.

Psychgrad- yeah, benefits are something I've been thinking a lot about, although I probably shouldn't open with that question huh? :)

B- I hope they don't ask me where I see myself in a few years! I'm pretty sure "I have no friggen idea" wouldn't go over to well. :)

No, I'd probably ask question about the job qualifications/requirements in particular before asking about benefits. They might try to skim over benefits in a phone interview. But, I would just make sure to know the full picture before commiting.
