Difficult Interview

Residence Life Student Advisor Interview

Residence Life Student Advisor
Kirksville, MO

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Truman State University in February 2013.

Interview Details – There was an online application with several short answer questions. A week after the application deadline, Residence Life sent an email indicating whether or not I qualified for the interview stage. There were several interview days to choose from. The interview stage was composed of one professional interview with several Residence Hall staff as well as several other group activities with other interested applicants. The professional interview was very generic, with all of the typical interview questions. The group activities were very creative and interesting. For example in one activity we were assigned to create a game or sport using a box full of random toys and trinkets.

Interview Question – The most difficult question in the interview was: "What kind of experience do you have in giving advice and counseling other people who are in trouble?"   Answer Question

Student Employee Interview

Student Employee
Kirksville, MO

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Truman State University in October 2010.

Interview Details – I sent a cover letter and resume to my boss and he emailed me a few months later saying I was in. There was no real interview. To even get on the list to be potentially hired I just had to be a non-freshman science major, and I am not sure what they looked for beyond that. Apparently I had what they needed though.
