Program Coordinator Interview
I applied online – interviewed at University of Texas at Austin.
1 prelim 1-on-1 interview and 1 group interview. The interview process will differ by department, however. All jobs are applied for over the website, and sometimes additional documentation is required. You have to upload your resume data to the application website, but also have the option of attaching a PDF.
- I don't remember, because it was a long time ago now. It was some standard inteview questions, such as whether you can work in a team and where you see yourself in 5 years. Now I'm here well beyond 5 years and in such a static environment that my boss had to retire for me to advance. Advancement is difficult here in general. Answer Question
No room to negotiate--it's essentially a state job.

ALWAYS negotiate your entry salary. Once your salary is fixed, the opportunities to significantly increase your pay are rare.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2011.
I was initially contacted within two days of applying via email. We scheduled an interview within two weeks for the position. After the interview a decision was rendered after 3 weeks. I was interviewed by the director of the program in his office. Very friendly encounter that was more of a running dialogue than hard pressed questions. The work culture was very relaxed.

Online application, followed by two interviews months later, and a job offer.
- I can't remember any that were particularly difficult or unexpected. It was not a trick question kind of environment. Answer Question
Negotiate the highest salary possible up front, because the annual salary increases are negligible. The best/only way to move up is generally to change positions within the organization.
