I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at University of Illinois at Chicago.
Interview Details – You must apply online. Each department interviews differently so I'm not sure who or where you will interview with. I would say that all the questions are standard. What they are really looking for is having real experience in social media (not the personal type either). It seems like whoever does their social media is really inept...all of it so it's easy to get in in any department and wow them. They have no idea about engagement, transparency, disintermediation, word of mouth, inbound marketing, etc so if you know these subjects well, you will be considered. They are looking for people with experience in campaigns and they do look for your ability to work under pressure, by yourself with little management and those that have initiative. They do want you to follow their rules (there are so many!) so you do have to work well with others in a team at times. You will get an email from HR stating that you have been considered but have to come in to complete forms. They will email several documents for you to fill out and turn in online first which include background checks, statements from previous employers, identifications, transcripts, etc. After that, they schedule an appointment and they gather all your forms and sit with you in front of a terminal to set up your accounts but get ready for the many etical forms you must sign.
Interview Question – None were difficult. The scenarios were freshman in nature. If you had a couple years of experience, you can quickly answer their questions like what would you do to promote an initiative to get students involved. I said put kittens and puppies in all marketing and advertising (as a joke). Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None, you take what you get!
