    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Biola.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with two people: the Director of University Communications and Marketing, and the Associate Director of Interactive Media. It's a small shop, so I worked closely with the latter person after I was hired. The questions from the Director of University Communications and Marketing were higher-level questions aimed in part at making sure I understood and was on-track with the mission of the team. They focus primarily on the outward-directed aspects of design (the public face of the University, working to attract prospective students, etc.) rather than the inward-focused aspects (e.g., assisting faculty with Blackboard issues). The second interviewer asked more technical questions about my background, my skill set, and my willingness to continue learning and developing as a web designer.
