interviewed at Emory University in April 2014.
preliminary phone interview, then all day interview. Gave me things to prepare and present for the all day interview. You will meet with a lot of different people. Make sure to send thank you notes or emails and to remember specific things from your conversations. They look for people who already understand and Emory university as a whole so a lot of research on the universities fundraising practices was necessary.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Emory University (Atlanta, GA).
I was initially hired as the first assistant director for the Office of Student Conduct, then promoted to associate director over four years later. My selection process was typical for a student affairs position: I submitted a cover letter, resume, and professional references. I had a telephone interview, then was invited for an on campus interview that was a full day in length and involved meetings with various constituency groups.
- At dinner the day before my interviewing began I was given a case study that was a composite of several difficult situations that office had recently addressed. I was asked to review the case and be prepared to discuss it at my final interview of the day. 1 Answer

I applied through other source – interviewed at Emory University.
Worked here in the past. Was hired back. Interview process consisted of sending resume and one meeting with boss. Pretty simple. Most people are referral hires in the department. No aptitude/personality tests. There is a background/drug screen after you've been given an offer.
Good luck negotiating. HR is pretty unlikely to offer a better salary since they have to make sure that everyone gets paid the same amount for a job title with similar work experience/background.
