Spring Interview Invitation


Recommended Posts

I recently got an invitation for a interview at ENMU and i am a little nervous about the whole process because i suck at things like this. The interview is supposed to happen online through zoom

for those of you that have gone through this process can you please shed some lights on what to expect. What kind of question will they ask me? will they ask questions relating to the profession? do i need to know anything about therapy material/treatments?  will they give clinical scenarios and ask me question on what i would do in a situation as such? Pls any information will help.

I was asked questions about my personality. Strengths, weaknesses, why would I be a good SLP/grad students. As well as questions about the importance of diversity and whether I had experienced diverse populations. It wasn't anything about "here is a scenario, what kind of treatment would you implement." They were all very broad questions trying to "get to know you as a person". I think the biggest thing is, can you interact with other people without it being awkward and uncomfortable. I wouldn't stress too much about it. I would also have a few questions to ask them about their program. They should give you an opportunity to ask them questions. I would ask about how many clinical placements you get and how they are assigned. Do you have to find them yourself or does the program help connect you to good sites? What does the class schedule look like? Are their GA positions available? Is the school research oriented or clinical based? Those are all questions you will probably want to know to help you make a final decision in the end. Your grad school experience will really differ depending on the answers to those questions. 

This is obviously all in my own experience. This could differ for other people. Good luck!

Thats interesting because during my interview they didnt even ask me any question pertaining to me at all. They just gave me 6 different scenarios questions and i had to come up with answers for them which was very stupid and annoying.  if you dont mind me asking, when did you interview with them?

Hi did you already have your interview? or still waiting?

Hey! I had my interview last week and it was a total joke to me. They didnt ask me any questions pertaining to getting to know me as a person. They just gave me 6 different scenario questions to answer. 

Good luck on yours! (if you have one coming up)
