    Student Services Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ISA (International Studies Abroad) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I originally applied online and didn't hear back for a few weeks. I eventually had a phone interview with the HR manager and he passed me on to a Skype interview a few days later. I thought I had done good during both interviews, but didn't end up getting the job. They didn't really ask me questions about the job but more about my experience when I studied abroad and what I knew about the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ISA (International Studies Abroad) (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Initially interviewed with the HR head which led to a group panel interview on Skype. All seemed to go smoothly but didn't end up with an offer. I believe my qualifications/experience matched well with the position but ultimately was given reason that did not seem to be an issue during the interview as to why I wasn't fit for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ISA (International Studies Abroad) (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I had a great phone interview with the HR rep and was told that I was a great candidate and that he would like to set up an in person interview. The in person interview went well, I was at the site for over an hour, and had a Skype interview later that afternoon with an executive who was traveling and out of the office. The next day I sent thank you emails to everyone I met with and received no responses. I reached out to the HR rep regarding their hiring timeline/when I should be hearing back about whether I was selected or not and he never responded. As it was over the holidays I gave it some time and reached out again. Again I was just simply ignored. From what I gleaned I was only one of two people being considered for the position at that time, so it seemed bizarre and frankly very unprofessional for the HR rep to not respond to me, regardless of what the news was. At that point I would have at least liked to have received a generic rejection email. The lack of communication was a huge red flag!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ISA (International Studies Abroad) (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I interviewed with a member of ISA's executive team within the past year. My interviewer was very friendly and respectful of my time. They made it clear that they had reviewed my information, and I did not feel like I had to repeat myself at all. The overall structure of the interview was very informal and not very structured. I had already completed a phone interview with HR, where the majority of the preliminary questions were answered. The majority of the in-person interview was spent talking about my work experience and study abroad experience. There was little emphasis on my academic background other than my second language proficiency. I was given ample opportunity to ask questions about the position and the company as a whole.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interview with HR:
      -Describe your background pertaining to this position?
      -How do you deal with/redirect unhappy customers?
      -Do you speak a second language?
      -Tell me about your study abroad experience. What worked and didn't work with the provider you used?
      -What are your strengths and weaknesses?
      -What is the most important thing you've learned in your current position?   Answer Question
