    Career Services Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at California College San Diego (San Diego, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Three step process--I only got through step 1, but them's the breaks. First interview, met with a career advisor and their boss for a one-hour interview. Went well, but my schedule wasn't as open as they'd like, so I wound up not getting a call back. Step 2, presentation, 30-45 min with Powerpoint, on current resume trends and interview tactics, since you'd be teaching classes on this stuff as part of the position. And finally, you'd meet directly with the Dean of the school, see if he agrees you'd be a good fit.

    I was directed to send and email to the person in charge of the federal work study program. I was then told to go to the company's website and apply for the position. I was contacted to set up a time for the interview. I went for the interview as a formality, as I was already going to get the position.

    Business Officer SAN Marcos Campus Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at California College San Diego in July 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the Campus President. The interview was an hour and a half. He told me that I would be called for a second interview with the registrar and the dean. He never called me back nor emailed after I followed up with him. Not sure what happened but I was disappointed that he did not keep his word.

    Interview Questions

    • This is interesting because he was talking to me about the school and it was more of a conversation. This is why I was confused on why he didn't call me back like he said he would. I guess their priorities changed or someone else was selected. He even said I meet the qualifications and I passed his interview. This was just a strange situation. This was not a difficult interview and he is actually a very nice person so I am feeling pretty bummed out.   Answer Question
