  1. Structured Phone Interview

    This really helps, thank you! The questions you were asked are fairly similar to what I've been preparing for, so that makes me feel a lot more confident. These are some great questions, thank you! He did mention he'd spend a few minutes talking about the background of the program, so hopefully that'll be a good place to gauge how formal the rest of the interview will be.
  2. Structured Phone Interview

    Hi everyone! I have a 45 minute phone interview coming up on Friday for an I/O PhD program and I'm looking for some general advice and feedback on my preparation so far. My current list of prep items includes: re-read personal statement to be able to expand on it/refer back to the "why I'm interested in the field" question create elevator pitch about my writing sample (research proposal- it was only a term paper so it wasn't intended to be executed as a full experiment/study, but it represents my topical interests well) go over POI's recent papers/faculty page and get familiar with the general outline of that info look through program website for curriculum and see if I have any questions about that My questions for you lovely people: Am I missing any critical step that helped you prep for a phone interview? How formal have phone interviews been for you? Are they more standard questions about your qualifications/experience, or did it seem more intended to determine personal fit? What types of questions did you ask/wish you had asked/would recommend asking as a current student? Right now I'm planning on asking about summer opportunities (internships, continuing to work on a professor's research, working on independent projects, etc.), and what types of projects might be coming up in this POI's lab soon. I appreciate the time you guys spent to read this! Really, any experiences or insight about what to expect would be super helpful.
  3. Fall 2018 I/O Psy

    I haven’t heard anything! Data from the results page in the past couple years had them giving interview invites 1/13 and 1/19, so based on that I would bet we might hear something by this Friday or early next week! I’m very anxiously awaiting any news, lol.

    We have Penn State, George Mason, Colorado State, and Clemson in common, I haven’t heard anything either! I’m not sure if you’ve looked at data from past years, but those should start notifying soon I think (except Clemson obviously lol since their deadline is the 15th). The results section had Penn State notifying about interviews on 1/13 and 1/19 for 2017 and 2016 respectively. Also, based on their websites I think we’ll hear back from George Mason and Colorado State around February 1st!
