Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
East Cambridge, MA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at MIT in May 2010.

Interview Details – I contacted my colleague for which a position was available in his department. I submitted my resume and cover letter via email. We spoke on the phone and set up a time to meet to discuss my desires. We then met t talk about my impending layoff and desire to transfer within the company. A second interview was then set up with him (the hiring manager) and the supervisor. It was pleasant, informative, congenial, and I felt I was a good match for the job. At the end of the interview, I was informed that a decision would be made within two weeks. This time had gone by, so I emailed my colleague to inquire about the status. He informed me that they were making an offer to another candidate, but if she didn't accept it I would be considered a finalist.

Interview Question – How would you handle a difficult situation where a director asked you for your immediate help with travel, and you had an imminent deadline on a presentation quickly approaching.   View Answer
