    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Houston.

    Interview

    Interviewed by the Development department which consisted of the Development Officer and the Development Coordinator. Questions were based around secretarial duties and Microsoft programs. Getting on campus is a pain so I would suggest arriving thirty to forty minutes ahead so that you can find proper parking and the correct building. Know about the department you are applying for because you will be asked what do you like about the company/department.
