    Interview Details

    Student Life is very into who you are as a person, as well as your past experiences (not necessarily work experiences). They ask behavioural questions, so be sure to pick examples that best reflect who you are and what you're about! Usually they give you the questions 5 minutes before the interview, so you can read them and be a bit more prepared for what they're going to ask.

    Interview Details

    I was contact VIA phone then by email to come in for an interview.
    I was interviewed by 4 people in the Communication department. We were lead to a small board room where we all sat at a table for the interview process. It was difficult to consistently make eye contact with everyone since they were sat all around me.

    They asked me a series of questions that they had laid out on sheets of paper, and as I answered they took notes.

    I also showed them additional pieces of my portfolio that were not showcased on my website.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at University of Guelph in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.
