Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Columbia University (New York, NY) in January 2013.

Interview

It was a lengthy but very professional and informative process. I never felt like I was waiting for an update. I met with HR, then with the Chief of Staff and then was called back to meet with the Dean of MSPH and the Finance Manger as well as the Admin on staff

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Columbia University (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I'm sure the process varies across the vast branches of the organization but for my department, the interview process was fairly straightforward for my department. They asked me the basic questions, "Tell me about yourself"; "Describe your greatest challenge in the workplace"; "Why do you want this job"; "Why will you be a good fit." Just be relaxed and speak honestly. I have found that most of the people working at the university are very approachable and friendly.

Then when I came in for the in-person, the same person who interviewed me over the phone was part of the panel. Again rushed and reading questions off scriptThe interview process felt rushed.
