    Web Content Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2007.

    Interview

    First interviewed with Bookstore manger, then IMT manger.
    Very quick, and simple interviews since the job was designed for a student working park time hours with no Benfits. Had to call many times to get the first interview, the Bookstore director is always busy. Was asked why I want this job, what do I hope to get out of it, past experience etc.. I did not bring a portfolio. I did mention my classes in webdesign. The IMT manger was more silent, and ackward.. I felt like I had to carry the interview, and do the talking. The bookstore was very busy, while the IMT department want slow and quiet. The bookstore depends on the IMT department to keep their site up and running.
