galaxstar Posted January 17, 2014 Share Posted January 17, 2014 A couple of years ago, I worked on a relatively confidential project for the government. I mentioned this project in my statements of purpose, because it was extremely relevant to my research interests. However, I'm now worried that I will be asked about specific techniques we used, and I'm not sure that I am legally allowed to disclose any of that information. The main concern here is that I'm just not sure. The supervisor for the project wrote my recommendation letter, and may or may not have mentioned anything specific, but I have no way to know since I waived my rights to access the letter. Additionally, he has been traveling for the past month, before I was notified of interviews, and therefore has not been able to get back to me about how much I can disclose. What should I do if an interviewer asks about this project? Should I just say that I'm not sure how much information I am allowed to disclose, because parts of the project were confidential? Thanks in advance for your advice! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
