    Peer Mentor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) (Provo, UT) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Small panel of two supervisors and a student leader. They had come prepared with the same sheet of paper and each took turns asking different questions. The interviewers were pretty quiet and didn't engage much during the interview. I think that I had the interview on Wednesday and then they called me with an offer on Monday or Tuesday the next week. So overall the process was very fast.

    Interview

    I was an intern in the program I now help coordinate.

After the summer, one of the people they hired didn't work out so they had an open spot and asked me to fill it.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Brigham Young University (BYU) (Provo, UT) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was super easy. I got a good grade in a class, so the professor contacted me. I sat down and talked about my life and goals, and they had me talk to their colleague. After they described their research, they asked me if I was interested, and then we talked about price. I should have asked for more.
