CDA Interview

CDA
Chicago, IL

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Illinois Institute of Technology in February 2010.

Interview Details – I was interviewing to maintain my position for the upcoming academic year. Extremely basic and traditional interview questions were asked. Interviewer did not seem truly interested in the process and had his nose in his notebook for the majority of the interview. If you go in with your strengths, weaknesses, goals, and history that may help on the job, you will be just fine.
