    Desktop Support Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty smooth. Interviewers were laid back and attentive to what I said. They asked questions that were substantial in determining if I was a good fit for the role. The interview was pretty lax because I had previously done the role as an assistant, and continued working with the company as a full-time student.

    Orientation Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process includes three portions: A formal interview, a "Show and tell" piece where you talk about different leadership experiences, and a third piece where you do a team project with a group of roughly five people. The formal interview portion takes place in a panel setting, with multiple returning advisors judging your questions. The presentation of leadership experiences is the craftiest portion and the easiest to prepare for because they provide the prompts beforehand. This is also where you can choose to exhibit your skills through the container. The group project occasionally changes, but this year it was a lego challenge. It's simple enough, so long as you are decent at communicating without being overpowering.

    Interview Questions

    • What does leadership mean to you? How would you address campus safety? How should the university address diversity? More questions, very similar to the application.   Answer Question
