Assistant Director Interview

Assistant Director
New York, NY

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Parsons the New School for Design.

Interview Details – I was referred by a friend and therefore somehow only met with the person who became my supervisor. It was a good interview but the job description seemed a bit less clear than it was on paper.

Interview Question – How would you market our program to people outside of the University?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was little room for negotiating the salary because of salary grade caps and budget limits.
