STP Counselor Interview

STP Counselor

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Florida International University in April 2014.

Interview Details – Filled out the application in detail, describing how I worked with children in the past. It asked a lot about the different sports I was interested in and how those skills would be able to translate to working with kids with ADHD. I sent in cover letter and resume along with 3 recommendations. After FIU received all of my information, I was emailed/called 3 weeks later. I set up an interview time and talked with the interviewer (Andrew) for around an hour and a half. (the man likes to talk) and he asked me several questions about what I had written in my application. He asked me to describe circumstances where i used problem solving skills and team-first mentality to overcome problems.
