Career Adviser Interview

Career Adviser

I applied online and interviewed at Towson University.

Interview Details – I had a 15 minute phone interview and then a half day interview. The process went pretty quickly compared to other Higher Education job search processes I have been a part of. During the half day interview I met with the entire Career Center staff, and some campus partners for a group panel interview. I also prepared a presentation for that group. I met with the director for a 1:1 interview.

Interview Question – The very first question during the phone interview was "What do you know about us". I was expecting the first question to be "Tell us about why you want this position" so I was thrown for a loop.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no room for negotiation
