    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at William & Mary.

    Interview Details

    First I submitted an online application and cover letter. i received a call three months later about scheduling a phone interview. The phone interview lasted about 20 min and was with a three-member panel. All of the questions were behavioral. There weren't any questions about how I would communicate in writing.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question was about working with difficult people. This was unexpected because this was a writing role that didn't apparently require a wealth of discussion between different offices.   Answer Question

    Student Affairs Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at William & Mary in July 2008.

    Interview Details

    Questions about why W&M instead of another institution. Behavioral questions. Standard questions. A couple of "What would you do if a student...." questions. Some student development theory questions. Interview started with breakfast with a senior administrator, then met with a group of students, a group of student affairs professionals, the staff of the office where I wanted to work, a presentation consisting of a sample workshop, some faculty, the job supervisor. After a tour of the campus, dinner with the job supervisor. A really long day. Although the questions were all very standard, I think they were mostly looking for bubbly, bright, energetic, enthusiastic. They also want to know that you think W&M is the best of all colleges. Poor grammar is a no-no.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating entry-level salaries. Definitley try to negotiate the best salary possible if you have directly relevant experience; it is very common for the State of Virginia to cancel all raises for college employees for a couple years at a stretch, so you need to start out as high as possible.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at William & Mary.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted for a phone interview months after I had applied the posted position. The person who contacted me was very professional (e.g., email with relevant details, phoned on time, etc.). There was a bit of time between the phone and in person interview, but I was kept informed about the process. The in person interview was with five people in the department, all of whom were friendly and clear about the position expectations and duties. I was disappointed not to be hired but had a good experience with the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • None. All of the questions relevant to the position were reasonable and expected. The other questions were pretty standard.   Answer Question
