I have been working at Academy of Art University part-time (More than 8 years)
* Learn from & rub elbows with top experts in various artistic fields
* Meet up-and-coming artists from all over the world
* Enjoy an bustling work environment downtown
* With a scattered, urban campus, it can be difficult to feel a sense of connection at times.
I applied online. I interviewed at Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA).
I had two interviews for this position. The first was meeting my main contact at HR who had initially reached out to me after I applied for the position. It was a basic, easy, and straight forward interview. The interviewer was very easy to talk to and invited me back to meet the Co-Director of Financial Aid. I came back for a second interview and it was also a very standard interview. If anything, with this interview I felt that the Co-Director was working very hard to connect and be personable, which made me feel at ease. There were a lot of personal questions asked, which I personally liked. I left the interview feeling like it was meeting a new friend for the first time and felt good about getting an offer.
