    Development Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Winston-Salem, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winston-Salem, NC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Wake Forest University in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited by an outside search firm retained to support Wake Forest in its development department's expansion. After a fairly thorough phone screen, I heard nothing for about 4 weeks, then received a phone call directly from the in-house recruiting team to set up an in-person interview. The whole process was beautifully managed, from putting me up at Graylen, an historic house that is now a hotel and conference center, to the actual day of interviews. It was not until I got there that I realized I was a finalist, not an early-round candidate, and met with nearly a dozen people in one day. Everyone was gracious, easy to interact with during the interviews, and seemed well-prepared.

    Negotiation Details
    Very reasonable.
