IT Project Manager Interview

IT Project Manager
Poughkeepsie, NY

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Vassar College in November 2013.

Interview Details – I posted my application via the site for a temporary (6+ month) position as IT Project Manager. Within a couple of days, I was contacted to set up a 30 minutes telephone screening interview, which took place about a week or so after I applied. The CIO and his direct reports all asked questions during the phone interview. About 2 weeks later, I got a phone call informing me that I was not selected.
