    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Georgetown University (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied online and met with office manager a week later.The position was a non-work study position. I met with several people in the office and chatted with each for 5 minutes or so. It was a small 10 person team. Later I met 1:1 with the office manager. This was the formal component of the interview. We talked about my experience with microsoft office and with office operations. We also discussed my involvement in activities and sports on campus so as to better gauge how much time I could commit per week. Chatting with people probably played a large role in my getting the position because interpersonal skills are such a huge component of the admin assistant job.
