    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at University of Texas System in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied through our University career page for part time jobs. The position required basic web skills along with some computer hardware knowledge and as I already had a personal page, the employer saw it and gave me a call for an interview. During the day of the interview, there was a panel of three people who interviewed me. They all were very nice and made me feel very relaxed. The following questions were asked:
    1) One interviewer showed me a printout of a HTML page which had a small list of items and asked me which tags were used to create this list.
    2) Other interviewer had opened a CPU box and asked all the components inside it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at University of Texas System in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was a pleasant experience, first met w/ administrator who was leaving, then with the professor who I would be working for. Administrator explained the requirements of the job, spoke w/ her for around 1/2 hours. then met one on one with the professor. he was a personable, relaxed fellow i would have enjoyed working for. i was hopeful that i was going to get an offer and was very disappointed when i didn't. when i called to follow up in a weeks time i got the impression i might have been the #2 pick, as the admin indicated that they were making someone else the offer, but they didn't know yet whether they were accepting
