    It's strictly based on your portfolio. When you apply for the university, make sure you apply for the position as well. It gets a lot harder and competitive if you wait to apply after the semester begins,

    Donor Relations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Syracuse, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was asked to do a Skype interview. It took about twenty minutes. The rep from HR pretty much just went over my resume. She asked me to tell her about each job I held. She had a hard time explaining what the job was that I was applying for. I thought the interview went well, but after two weeks I never heard back. I reached out to my interviewer and was told that they hired someone with more experience, which isn't much of a stretch since I had zero donor relations experience.

    Interview

    there's no formal interview exactly, they just look at your resume and cover letter, and see if you are a good fit. It would help a lot if you know someone and they know that you have a great passion for teaching. They'll ask if you know what to do for being a teaching assistant and some of them will ask to see your portfolio. But other than that, it's nothing too serious

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview involved being interviewed in a small room, seated at a small conference table (seats 6). I was at the table with 5 people who each were interviewing me. It was very nerve racking and intimidating, especially for an initial interview. I've never experienced being interviewed by so many people nor on the initial interview.
