    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Illumina (San Diego, CA)

    I've only interviewed within academia. However, from my experience, if they are not interested, they would not follow up for a phone interview.

    The preferred qualifications can sometimes be fairly loose. My suggestion would be to try and show that you are or would be capable of learning statistical analysis techniques and NGS.
