    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at West Chester University.

    Interview

    You apply online with your resume and preferences. You have to get 3 reccomendations and then you go through 4 group interviews where a panel of 4 residence life staff interviews 4 students together. You have to create a visual aid for the interviews that describes who you are and you have a minute to present it at each interview. Then there is a group processing day where you do team building activities and you are evaluated during them. If you miss any deadlines, you are out of the running.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at West Chester University.

    Interview

    There are about 5 panel interviews, with usually 4 RDs/GAs conducting the interview and 5 people being interviewed. The interviewers conduct these interviews back to back so many can seem disinterested in your answers, thus having a relevant and memorable answer is quite helpful.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at West Chester University (West Chester, PA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    A bit overwhelming. Must be prepared with solid research proposal. IRB approval is difficult and tie consuming to achieve. But once you begin the research it is exciting. Must meet with lead professor and explain hypothesis and plan for data collection. Must then go through IRB approval process. SONA system can be helpful.
