Difficult Interview

Executive Director Innovation Academy Interview

Executive Director Innovation Academy
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at University College Dublin in November 2013.

Interview Details – After submitting CV online I was contacted by email with a proposed date for an interview. Panel interview with two academics, one HR and one entrepreneur. Interview over 1 hour. Two questions asked by each of the panel members. Time for questions at the end which openly clarified lack of flexibility by the panel for the terms of the appointment.

Interview Question – How is it that your current company cannot make good use of your strong skills, knowing that your company obviously needs the skills you have?   Answer Question

Administrator Interview

Administrator
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University College Dublin in June 2008.

Interview Details – The interview process took around 2 weeks to organise with HR making several calls to me to re-arrange the date and time of the interview. The interview itself consisted of a panel of 3 people, one of whom was from HR, one of whom was an academic and one of whom was an in admin. They were relatively friendly but not particularly encouraging. It was as if the person had already been chosed and they were simply going through the motions
