    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston College.

    Interview

    The most difficult part of the process for Boston College is the very prolonged hiring process that most offices use. The job typically is posted for 30 days and without a referral or being an internal candidate, it is extremly difficult to get hired.

    Interview Questions

    • BC is a Jesuit institution and many times candidates are not prepared if they are asked about the Jesuit values or something like "what does it meant to be part of a Jesuit institution?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    BC claims that when they make you an offer it is their best offer. In some cases that has been true, but in other cases people have negotiated well beyond the posted range . So depending on your level of experience you should always try to negotiate for the best salary you can get but don't expect them to budge.
