When interviewing to be an academic advisor, employers are looking for a candidate with some background experience in advising to back up their qualifications. An extensive knowledge about college programs, requirements, and transferring must be a part of an academic advisor's repertoire Expect questions about your advising style and be prepared to provide an example of how you could implement your knowledge to help a student realistically reach their dream school.
