Social Media Coordinator Interview

Social Media Coordinator

I applied online and interviewed at Johnson & Wales University.

Interview Details – Applied online through their portal, a few weeks later received an email about an initial screening call, did the screening call with 2 people - they asked good questions about my current work experience and told me more about the position. A day or two later got a call for an in person interview scheduled for a week or so out. It was a great interview experience, very professional everyone was very kind they gave good directions to the building etc. At the end of the interview I was told they were interviewing the first round of candidates and would let me know by the end of next week if I was going to come in for another interview, an online test, and a written test. That was almost a month and a half ago, never heard anything and the job posting is still up. Marketing admissions can be busy in April, their needs may have changed, who knows what happened. That's the way these things go sometimes.

Interview Question – Wanted to hear about specific projects, and also about a time I had pitched a project that was rejected and what I learned from it etc.   Answer Question
