    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at University of Houston.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by the Development department which consisted of the Development Officer and the Development Coordinator. Questions were based around secretarial duties and Microsoft programs. Getting on campus is a pain so I would suggest arriving thirty to forty minutes ahead so that you can find proper parking and the correct building. Know about the department you are applying for because you will be asked what do you like about the company/department.

    In order to get hired, you are referred to a website depending upon the location you choose. Other locations would sit you down and ask your class schedule and what specific opportunities do you hope to find within the job you are interested in. Very few locations have an interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at University of Houston in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Note: this was at the law school. It was kind of a no-brainer, honestly, because I'd already taken two classes and knew the hiring professor well, plus I'd done well in his classes and made a point of being an active class participant. I don't know if he even interviewed anyone else, and I got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • The only difficult question was determining when I could work for him amidst all my other myriad school responsibilities.   Answer Question
