University of Southern California Project Specialist Interview Question

I interviewed in Los Angeles, CA and was asked:
"Very informal, found out about position through a referral from another USC employee. Was hired based on my educational background, personality, and a good fit for the position/USC. I met with my future boss, discussed their research/goals and explained my background. Was hired on the spot!"

Networking is key. Its hard to determine whether or not I would've had the position without the referral, but internal hiring is a commonplace at USC and other employers. But, I can tell you that I was an external hire, not internal. I've tried applying to other positions as an internal hire and have been turned down several times. So whether or not your an internal USC employee, external applicant, have a USC referral from a higher-up, you will get turned down. This job market is not fair to anyone these days.
