In this round, three professors ( Two of which were the advisors of the position), asked me about my overall background and why I am interested in this position, and how it is connected to my background. it took about 15 minutes. after a couple of days, they invited me for a full interview in around 13 days. in this round, I had to present my approach for starting the project in 15', so a good effort for studying relevant literature was required. this presentation was followed by about 20minutes of Q&A by four people from two faculties, and one from the university research institute. Questions were both from the general level to more specific and professional ones. why you want to earn a PhD and not work in the industry?(screening interview) Why you think of yourself as a good candidate for this position?(screening interview) one specific question about my masters degree and its relevance to the project.(screening interview) about 4-7 questions specific to the project and my presentation.(Full interview) 3-4 general questions on my approach to earning a PhD and on my current position( whether I am applying for other PhD positions, ...)(Full interview) one question on my artistic attitudes( completely irrelevant to the project, but related to one of my skills in in my CV)(Ful Interview)

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Delft University of Technology in Apr 2020

Interview

I sent an email with the requested documents (CV, cover letter, copy of master's thesis, list of references) to a HR representative. I was invited for a 30-minute video interview with 3 members of the research group 3-4 weeks later. They asked me a lot of questions about why I resigned from my previous position and my career aspirations. They did not ask anything about my skills, education, or experience. They instead asked me about skills which I did not possess (which were not listed as requirements for this project). It seemed to me that they did not go through my application materials properly and were not really interested in hiring me. They also asked me about my nationality and sounded negative that I did not include this information in my CV. I received a generic rejection email the next day. Successful candidates would be required to create a presentation of the research plan and present it to a panel during a second interview.

Interview

Voor dit proces heb ik alleen het Online interview gehad. Ik ben niet verder gekomen dan het eerste gesprek met een externe recruiter. Afgewezen door een recruitment assistant telefonisch met goede uitleg dat ik te weinig relevante ervaring had voor de rol. Maar wel een interessant profiel.
