Executive Administrative Assistant Interview

Executive Administrative Assistant
Catonsville, MD

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at UMBC in August 2010.

Interview Question – There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase was very short as I had been out of work for some time and needed to secure employment as soon as possible.

Difficult Interview

Graphic Designer Interview

Graphic Designer
Baltimore, MD

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at UMBC in September 2012.

Interview Details – I found out that my initial communications were a reflection of the overall process I would be going through after I was hired - meaning that because ambiguity was a part of the interview, it would also be a part of the job. Discovering the connection each of the employees has with each other was important because it meant that there was a way that I could reach out to respond later on for following up with a thank you note.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was about what I thought art was, and how I believed it applied to this position. It made me believe I was being asked to be too subjective, and it seemed off-topic to me.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, it was a take it or leave it scenario.
