YC Research Interview

(Jordan Elpern-Waxman) #1

Does anyone know anything about the YC Research Interview format? I received an email that in its entirety read:

Thanks for applying to the YCR Cities Researcher position.
Let's do a 5-minute Skype call this week. You can schedule time here [link to scheduling page]; I'm at [Skype username].

What can you possibly cover in 5 minutes?

That seems like a phishing scam.

Ha! You’re right, it does. I am happy to report however that it was not. I successfully had my 5 min Skype call with Luke Iseman, who was actually incredibly gracious and apologetic about the fact that he had to do over 100 interviews and that each one was going to be such a blur.

@noneck this is off topic, but how do I get in touch with you?
