Program Coordinator Interview

Program Coordinator
Missoula, MT

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Montana in October 2008.

Interview Details – I submitted my application through the Human Resources office and received a phone call from the supervisor of the position inviting me for an interview. The interview lasted about an hour, and consisted of a range of questions, many of them generic "canned" interview questions that did little to allow me to demonstrate my experience and skills relevant to the position. If I had been the person conducting the interviews, I would have wanted to know more about how the candidates would address typical job duties and responsibilities. I didn't feel that the interview gave me a good chance to demonstrate my strengths, yet I still received an offer.
