    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Columbia University.

    Interview

    Responded to an ad, the director called to schedue an interview. She asked three generic questions that did not have much to do with the actual job, and then said thanks for coming. I didn't get a chance to ask any questions. I'm not sure why they called me for an interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia University in December 2010.

    Interview

    The first phase was a phone interview with basic background questions like why do you want to work here, what do you know about our institution and why should we hire you. In the second phase, I met with the small team that I would be working with and it was more conversational than anything else. In the third phase I had to do any presentation of my choosing to the whole center staff.

    • What is your philosophy of counseling?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No. Salary levels are set by the University which are known to the candidate in advance so there's no possibility for negotiations.
