Clark University Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Graduate Assistant Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Clark University
Interview Details – Just simple interview. I do not think Professor ask other people to interview. Just tell me job content and ask me whether I'm willing to do.
Help Desk Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Clark University in December 2011.
Interview Details – Apply online with a brief questionnaire. Once approved, you are called in for an interview with management and supervisors (full time and student). They ask a few questions, experience, etc. Very little computer experience (Do you know how to use Office? ok) and more customer-service oriented questions.
Interview Question – If you had to explain to an alien who had never seen anything human how to assemble a peanut butter and jelly sandwich over the phone, how would you do it? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiating at all.
Career Services Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Clark University in April 2012.
Interview Details – I applied via email and by mail. A co-worker had a connection to get my resume to the hiring manager who was the director of the Graduate school of management. I prepared by learning as much as I could about Clark and about the GSOM office and what they offered. I prepared questions based on the job description. I was told my my friend that they thought I was over qualified and that I would have to convince them that I would stay in the role for some time. I think the reason that I did not get the role is that I am currently interning as a career advisor, and the director did not think I really would be happy with an adminstrative role. The interview was hard, and the director was a former recruiter.
Interview Question – In your current or previous job, what kind of pressures do you encounter? Answer Question

Management Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)

Interview Details – Brutal interview staring with department consisting of direct supervisor, and a few others in the same area, followed by an hr visit, then a interview with 20+ people from the entire department
Interview Question – Many off topic questions that seemed to try to trip you up. Had to take a pause to think about not only an answer but what they were really looking for. Answer Question
