Associate Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Houston in December 2010.

Interview Details

I saw the position advertised through a professional association. The closing date was that day so I took a chance and emailed the hiring manager about whether I should still apply since it was a sure bet that they already had a lot of applicants. The manager sent back an immediate reply that the department would welcome my application. Soon after I sent my resume and cover letter, I was invited for an interview cycle.

Interview Questions
  • Most of the questions were standard behavior-based interview questions ("Tell us about a time when...") with a couple more hard-hitting questions about why I wanted to work at UH. One interviewer didn't seem satisfied with my responses and no matter what I said, she kept asking the same question but phrased slightly differently each time. I was starting to get frustrated but I stayed calm and later I found out that she recommended that I be hired.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
No negotiation but the offer was fair.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Houston in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Met with the Department Head and discussed the advantages of the position and how I could best perform the duties. It was important to have a clear view of where the program was and where it should be going. Specifics weren't needed just a clear plan for overall program growth. Networking was a key to getting into this interview.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    In academia money is usually tight and negotiations were limited for pay. Consider other resources you may want... ie. office with window.
