    Social Media Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - 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 Details

    First, you have to attend an orientation information session (which is offered several different times) at the end you received an application packet. After completing the application, drop it off before the deadline and attend a group interview night. At the group interview night you must make an impression, for us we did introductions in front of everyone and then broke into smaller groups to create a skit. At the end of the group interview night, you sign up for an individual interview time; however, you are sent an email to say if you moving on to the individual interviews. If you receive an email, you attend the interview at the time you signed-up for. After the individual interview, you are given a date in which all the interviews will be done and everyone will have an envelope to pick up. In the envelope you receive a letter stating where or not you received the job!
