Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
High Point, NC

I applied online - interviewed at High Point University in December 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted by e-mail to schedule an on campus interview. I did and found the campus easy to navigate and good parking near the interview building. I participated in a group interview first and then a one-on-one with the department manager.

Interview Question – The questions were mostly based on the fact that I was overqualified for the position. I explained why I was looking for a lower level position, but the questioning continued.   Answer Question
