Just one round of interviews and I get the response after a week. The interview was easy and only ask a few of your past experience and many behavior questions, such as why you interested in working with us.

Submitted a video Q&A, where I had to answer questions sent to me from HR and record my answers on a timed video. Was a weirdly anxiety inducing experience. Heard no follow up for months until they decided to not hire for the position.

I applied online. I interviewed at University of Colorado Boulder

Interview

After greetings and introductions, I was given the opportunity to ask any questions I had. I was thrown off as typically a candidate’s questions are requested at the end of the interview with whatever time is left over. The interview panel was made up of three people of varying hierarchal levels. They took turns reading each question aloud to me. None of the questions were trick questions and all were easy to answer. The panel thoroughly expressed how much they appreciated the questions I asked. So if you want to make a good impression, do your research on the hiring body and ask well thought out questions.

Interview Questions
  • Describe a situation when you had an unpopular opinion and acted upon it. How do you keep your manager informed as to what you’re working on? How would you handle a situation where you’re manager is requesting confidential information that is not there’s to know?

As if the ‘looking-for-a-job’ process wasn’t already soul-sucking enough, CU Boulder has decided to embrace the (unfortunate) trend of utilizing HireVue to conduct their first round of interviews. If you’ve not had the “pleasure” of experiencing this type of interview, prepare yourself for a fantastic time [/s].

Interview Questions
  • Imagine/create a potential scenario that a prospective student might encounter sometime throughout the application process and write them a letter addressing both their concerns and proposing solutions—be specific to the resources offered by CU Boulder. …and do all this in 5 minutes.
