I had an onsite interview that followed a phone interview by a couple of days. The interview was interesting in that during the phone interview the recruiter asked me to consider and prepare to respond to 3 specific things. One had to do with operations and logistics, a second area was about intern development and the third was coordinating an educational program.
Over the course of a couple of days, probably about 3 hours total, I formulated some responses to the areas being considered. I actually created a PowerPoint for myself that I took into the interview, both printed and on my tablet (in case I could not get network access).
The interview itself was different in that there were very few questions asked. Most of the time, I spent listening to the interviewers thoughts about the plans and goals for the organization. During the course of the hour plus discussion I did get to present some of my thoughts on the three areas. Even though I did not get to give the complete details, because of time I at least got to provide some broader thoughts and show that I was prepared.
Some take-aways from the experience: First the preparation paid off. I felt prepared and confident to cover the required areas. Second, the notes I created were very helpful. As we got into the discussion and I realized we were running short on time, I was able to go to the areas that seemed most pertinent to the concerns that were articulated by the interviewer. Second, always be ready to be quick on your feet. I had planned for the interview to be more "standardized" and to get more time to talk, but had to adjust on the fly for a different experience. Hopefully, it was good, but I think that I did a good job on my end and I cannot control what the interviewer thinks.
