Coordinator Interview

Coordinator

I applied online and interviewed at Oklahoma State.

Interview Details – The first interview was with a panel of four people from the department and people who work closely with the department, including the direct supervisory. The interview was structured with a specific list of questions prepared in advance. The second interview was with the same panel of four, and they allowed plenty of time for my questions and more open-ended dialogue.

Interview Question – All the questions were fairly standard and predictable.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – HR handled the offer and onboarding process. There was an orientation class immediately after I started, and the supervisor encouraged me to take time to meet people on campus. She was professional and very supportive as I learned about OSU and working in a state/academic institution.

Graduate Assistant Interview

Graduate Assistant
Stillwater, OK

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Oklahoma State.

Interview Details – The award process is completely based on your application. Given the low number of applicants, I'd say you're almost guaranteed funding (within reason) if you apply.

Interview Question – The most difficult questions are simply those on the application. There is no true "interview."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating. The stipend is set. I'd consider asking to possibly TA 2 classes though as opposed to being both a TA and research assistant.

Extension Educator Interview

Extension Educator

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Oklahoma State.

Interview Details – Two-tiered system. Applicant pool interview is a no-brainer and basically if you know someone within the system its a shoe-in. Its important to get qualified for all subject areas up front otherwise there is no opportunity to move to a slasher position down the road. Specific site interviews ask basic questions and see how you would fit within the office structure.

Interview Question – Who would you include in your stakeholder panel?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation, no room to negotiate, the salary is stated up front and there is no deviation from it.
