Tips for academic advisor interviews.

Comments (4)


Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming academic advisor interview?

Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?

I am wondering the same thing. I have applied for an academic advisor position at a local state university that is literally five-ten minute walking distance from my home, after being a stay-at-home mom and elementary teacher in my current and past vocations.

I am wondering what would help me prepare for upcoming interview this August-Sepember if I even get a call from the university. The position has a projected starting date of October 1, 2007.

Be prepared to tell how you would deal with and motivate a student who wasn't sure whether to enroll, or whether to continue taking classes.

I was recently interviewed for the AA position. I had studied something else than education.
Some questions were:

Why education?

Also, which skills would I contribute?

Why I want to be an Academic Advisor?

Hope that helps.
