Difficult Interview


The process took 1 day. I interviewed at San Mateo County in October 2011.


The initial application process was simple. I filled out an online questionnaire which included 5 essays. I was contacted with an interview date about three weeks after the closing date. I spent about 1-2 days preparing for the job interview mainly by reviewing the job announcement, my resume and preparing sample questions and answers for the interview.

I spent about 5-10 minutes discussing the interview with an HR representative before I was brought into the room. They asked me five questions and gave me an opportunity for a closing statement. After my closing statement I engaged in an extended conversation with the hiring official.

A week after my interview, I was contacted by email and told that I ranked in the top 5 based on my interview score. Two weeks later I was notified by HR that the position had been filled and another candidate selected.
