Asked by Kate on March 23, 2019

I recently was at a final interview for a development program, and all candidates were told that they'd be notified within two weeks. It's been a week, and I haven't heard anything back from them, and my guess is that they've already extended an offer to their top candidates and are waiting for them to respond. So what actually happens after the final interview?

ADP have responded.

Hi There! Two weeks is a general time frame recruiters give interviewees, however this can be pushed back based on hiring manager availability, other ongoing interviews, approvals should an offer be in…

Asked by Robert on February 13, 2018

I would like to search for jobs that require a written skills exam (e.g literacy, math, IQ) and use this as a primary criterion in the hiring decision. How can I do this kind of job search? Are there job search engines, placement programs, or other resources that specialize in this or at least have it as an option? My job center told me that they did not know how one could do this.

ADP have responded.

Hi there! This is a tough question as I think your career center is right, I am unfamiliar with any resources or ways where you can see if there are any sort of assessments that are part of the interviewing…

During college I spent most of my summers taking extra courses and conducting field research either individually or with a couple different professors, but it was never paid work or an internship per say.  I got course credits for it, but will my lack of formal internship experience hurt my chances of landing a job?

ADP have responded.

Hi there! Although formal relevant internships are typically preferred, having any experience, even if you’re not paid for it, is still good experience to have – especially if the courses and field…

Asked by Kassi Rosenberry on November 16, 2018

I'm a business college student and the advice everyone gives is network, network, network; however, as a college student this can be very hard or intimidating because lots of the time these networking opportunities are at career fairs or industry association meetings. What are some tips to help stand out and what are some of the qualities or skills employers are mainly looking for in a candidate?

ADP have responded.

Hi there! Although networking can be intimidating at first, it gets easier the more you do it so my recommendation is to attend events and put yourself in situations where you can network with others as often…

Hi! I am a senior in college and I had an internship this semester. I've learned a lot from this internship but I do not want to continue working here next semester.

ADP have responded.

Hello! You never want to burn any bridges so make sure that you leave your current internship in good terms. Thank them for the opportunity and let them know that you want to diversify your experience but want…

What is the best way for me to earn an internship?

ADP have responded.

Hi there! I love hearing about students starting early! Now, it may actually be difficult to get an internship so early in your collegiate career, mainly because companies typically have internships with the…

How do second or third round interviews generally differ from first round interviews? Will I meet with more senior-level people or be asked different types of questions, or should I just expect more of the same?
