    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at University of Guelph (Guelph, ON (Canada)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I wrote an email to the professor and attached the application that was provided on the website along with my resume and cover letter (I believe the application looked for a statement of intent as well). I had a phone interview and then came in for an in-person interview. I had a class with the professor at the time and he also mentioned that he was really impressed with a paper that I wrote, which I believe helped me get the position, but overall, my experience was what quickly showed to be my greatest asset in the role.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Guelph in December 2010.

    Interview

    When recruiting for new candidates they often post posters around the cafeterias at school. The posters were very vague and didn't say much so you would have to inquire more about the position with the given contact information. The interviewer has a very vibrant personality which is shown in her style. The interview was very general and I was asked the usual questions, such as talking about yourself, past experience, why you're interested in the position. They also talk more about what the position entails. After the interview they ask that you rate on a scale of 1-5 of various tasks that you would be interested in doing such as administrative, merchandising etc. They generally want people with marketing, merchandising experience as well as personality. It's a bonus if you know how to use various design programs since you'll be designing a fair amount of posters.
