CalPERS Student Assistant Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Student Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CalPERS.
Interview Details – Pretty standard and easy interview. You're given a moment to look over the interview questions. You will likely be asked about your ability to prioritize/manage assignments and strengths/weaknesses. Just be friendly and personable! I pretty sure I botched my interview by being overly eager and asking about advancement opportunities. Lesson learned!
Student Assistant Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at CalPERS in March 2010.
Interview Details – The interview process was very laid back. Two people interviewed me at the same time, mostly asking questions about my resume and outside life. I did not prepare very well and thought that I came off a little nervous (probably did, but inside recommendation probably helped); however, I was offered the job after several weeks.
Interview Question – I see that you like to coach, how can these skills be transferred to the office environment? Answer Question
