Interview Question – Why do you want to work for a small employer? View Answer
Reason for Declining – An offer was not extended. I met the following week with the Sr. DOA. She was 30 mins. late to the interview. In addition, she spent the whole interview jawning. But wait things get better, she proceeded to ask me why I wanted to work for a small school. I provided my answer and she got a bit defensive saying that it did not show anywhere that I worked for a small employer before. Really!!!! Did you really read my resume? Not only that when I told her I had some questions for her, she told me that she did not have time and that she had another meeting. Then she proceeded to tell me that 5 out 7 people that where going to be under the Associate's supervision where on written notice. I wonder why???? This place is VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!!!

Negotiation Details – Yes. That the only opportunity that you get to negotiate is at the offer stage. Be prepared with what you will take as a minium and what benefits are important to you. Be creative. It is not only the salary. Moving expenses, insurance, bonuses, etc. and advancement possibilities are key.
