    Interview Details

    I applied for the job via email, and got an interview invitation within a few days. However, most of the jobs are through an online application and take quite some time to get a call. I had a phone interview because I was four hours away. I had to provide references, then I got the offer.

    Regional Admissions Counselor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at University of Mississippi.

    Interview Details

    I received a call asking me to interview for this position. The interview involved a one on one meeting with the director, with the Assistant Vice Chancellor, and then a group interview. Questions are very typical, asking you to sell the school, etc: all things you would expect from someone who is recruiting. No questions about your resume really. It's like they all have a script and go around the room alternating. Hiring process was somewhat unprofessional, due to a lack of strong communication between the department and HR. Should have tipped me off to the office culture.

    Regional Admissions Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in University, MS
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in University, MS
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Mississippi in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the HR website and received a phone call about a week later to come in for an interview. The interview process was 3 parts: a 4 person panel, one on one with the Director, and one on one with a Vice Chancellor. The panel part was all situational questions; what would you do if a student/parent asked/told you this? There was a script that they stuck to, bouncing around the room each asking different questions. They only asked one general question about what experience I had that I felt qualified me for the position. The one on one with the Director was more for me to ask specific questions about the position and the one on one with the Vice Chancellor is her stressing the importance of always acting professional in the position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at University of Mississippi in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    The department hires very less graduate students each semester. Usually acceptance rate is high in the Fall semester. There is no such interview process other than submitting our academic certificates and CV and statement of purpose to the graduate school as well as to the department. They screen out you from several applicants and let you know whether you got the admission or not.
