    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was coordinated by the liaison. It was relatively straight forward. Was difficult to get a quick response from the contracted placement. To clarify, I was being interviewed for a placement outside of the school once I was accepted into the social work graduate program. The staff was incredibly nice and easy to work with. You have to advocate for yourself immensely as some placements are not the right fit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Washington.

    Interview

    Many, MANY interviews for a fairly low-rung job, but it's to be expected at a public university. It was clear that folks were not prepared for the interviews, and/or didn't really feel the need to exert too much effort. Maybe refining the process so only the input of those working most closely with the position is necessary would be helpful. Felt very much like a cog in a big machine.
