Hello there! I have an upcoming interview at Boston Children's Hospital for a Research Assistant position (entry level, molecular biology protocols/lab techniques). Although I have had interviews before, I am super nervous abt this one. I would love if you can share some tips/advice on how to nail the interview!

Congrats - sounds like an exciting opportunity! I'd start by looking on Glassdoor to see if anyone has posted some of the interview questions. Also, you might try reaching out to someone on LinkedIn who works in a similar role. They might be able to provide some insight as to what you should expect. Lastly, take a deep breath, relax and be yourself. You've got this!!!

Thank you for the advice, appreciate it!

Have you checked if any interview tips are available on glassdoor?

I practice alot. I literally record myself answering questions (standard interview questions) and then play it back to see how I did. Its kind of cringey at first but it gets better.

Be comfortable speaking about your past and current lab experiences. Not just what the lab work was but the ins and outs of why you performed the experiments. Also, think about examples of challenges and troubleshooting you've had to do with the experiments. Most PIs like to see your independent and critical thinking, as well as passion for the projects.

I feel like I dodged a bullet if that's how they handle negotiations. Is this common?! I've never heard of a firm doing this. For context, I have 9-10 years of experience and they desperately need somebody at my level.

I became involved with a similar org since I’ve been unemployed and they suggested that I apply for one of their roles. (cont.)

Friends recently joined new company. 3 months ago.

Overall work is okay. It's fine.

It's the team members. As its work from home, I saw my team members after so many days @ office. I was very excited to meet them. But I didn't find any excitement in them to meet me. Also she doesn't say Hi, or bye when leaving office. Is this normal or I'm reacting too much.

Please suggest. Also how do I make them talk to me more. As they are girls I cannot go to lunch with them.
