Data Entry Interview

Data Entry
Bloomington, IN

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Indiana University in June 2013.

Interview Details – Initial communications began after submitting my application, resume and cover letter through the university's job website. About a day later I received an email from the manager of the group I was applying for who was interested in scheduling an 1:1 interview for sometime in the coming days. I quickly replied and received a message back within minutes that included a time and meeting place for the interview as well as suggestions for parking, as public parking is very limited on the campus.

The interview itself was brief, about 20 minutes total. It was a fairly straightforward interview. No odd or unreasonably difficult questions were asked. Basically, all questions were about relevant work experiences as well as educational background. Also asked were my goals for the future, specifically regarding long term employment with the university.

Interview Question – What are your goals for the future with regard to long term employment with the university? Is that something you would be interested in?

Follow up question:
What would your dream position be with the university?
