Marketing Coordinator Interview

Marketing Coordinator

I applied online and interviewed at United Way.

Interview Details – I applied via their online portal and got a phone interview with two members of the team. The interview was pretty straight-forward - very job specific and less personality oriented. They were specifically looking for someone with a lot of experience in events and list management, which was not my niche.

Interview Question – Nothing was entirely difficult or unexpected. They simply asked detailed questions about common questions. i.e. In regards to list management: what programs have you used, are you familiar with the backend, etc.   Answer Question

Director, Community Impact Interview

Director, Community Impact

Interviewed at United Way

Interview Details – The interview process consisted of a phone screen and two in-person interviews. You should have a really good sense of the major policy issues, trends and challenges in the field. Major plus if you know how to analyze data. Also be sure to be able to demonstrate your knowledge about what is happening in the community. Also a plus if you already know people in the field that you could potentially work with if you got the job. Community Impact is full of smart, committed people that are passionate about the work. Demonstrate your passion too.

Interview Question – If you don't have a ton of experience in the field, then it will be difficult to answer specific questions about your previous work. Also, if you don't have a good sense of public policy issues you might have difficultly answering some of the questions.   Answer Question
