    Director of Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Community College of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A structured interview process probing for sales skills - group interview with four individuals. All candidates received same questions so they could compare and contrast answers/candidates. During the interview, I sensed that I have a broader, deeper higher education background than what they were looking for, and that I may have not connected with their users. My past experience extended beyond the geography of the city of Philadelphia.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Community College of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    At first, the interview process was professional. I was given thorough details for the interview and waited two weeks for a reply. Then, I interviewed for the position. The process was underdeveloped, in regards to organization and execution. The climate was intimate but aloof for an academic environment.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any difficult questions, that is what worried me. However, there was one unexpected question in regards to external obligations and previous experiences.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not need to negotiate anything. All salary requirements and program coordination was previously arranged, or so I thought.

    Faculty Librarian (Full Time, Tenure-track) Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Community College of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    For the first hour I was read a series of about 12 standardized questions related to the position, my background as a librarian, and the college community. After that I taught a mock 20 minute class in a computer classroom to the same panel.

    Bear in mind that about half the panel were other faculty that I either already worked with or had met. My main impression of the process was that it was not very transparent, that little flexibility was given to the search committee on how to elucidate the candidates. When I tried to "go deep" on a few of my answers I got the sense of some of the panel members shutting down. I felt that they had already made a decision not only about me but about the position itself.
