What people are saying about University of Washington

Human Resources



Senior Instructional Designer

I've worked as an Instructional Designer and as a Corporate Trainer for 10+ years. However, I have always been on the product side of L & D, rather than HR. Do I need SHRM-CP? Many of the openings that I am currently coming across are in HR, instead of Product Management.

      Decent pay Decent support Can be a great experience if you choose the right group


      Work life balance is completely dependent on your advisor so choose wisely

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?


      Personal Banker

      I'm a fresh graduate this year, and finished internships at 3 banks, how can I prepare for interviews of banks? and what about skills that should I improve to work as a banker?
