Program Coordinator Interview

Program Coordinator
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at University of Pennsylvania in June 2009.

Interview Details – First interview 1:1, second interview 2:1, and third interview 4:1. Each of the interviews occurred a month or two apart and questions ranged from background/experience to professional goals/trajectory. Interviewers gave impression of a friendly, vision-oriented department in all 3 interviews. Office space arranged in cubicles; a little more cramped than perhaps in other areas of campus. Highly decentralized structure, with each individual mostly siloed off for his/her specific responsibilities.

Interview Questions

  • Where do you see yourself in 10 years?   Answer Question
  • Do you have experience/how would you handle difficult questions or demands from parents or representatives of prospective students?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Minimal. Was able to re-negotiate after 1 year of working, however. I would highly recommend asking as many questions as it takes to fully understand your potential responsibilities/the position parameters.
