    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Delaware.

    Interview

    3+ months. Starts with a phone interview, then a full day of on campus interviews with panels and individuals. The questions weren't too challenging, but it was a lengthy process. UD is an amazing place to work, though, so it was well worth it. The one thing to be aware of is that on average, 60 plus people are applying for the same job, so be sure to make yourself standout in your resume and cover letter.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain what you know about FERPA, ADA, and HIPAA and how they relate to this role.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Fairly simple. They offered a salary and I asked for a little more and it was agreed. UD has salary ranges listed on their website, so use that as a guide.
