On-Campus Interviews

Try To Stand Out

Even if you have never been to a speed-dating event, you probably know what it entails: Two people sit on different sides of a table and have a short amount of time to decide if they are compatible. Then they move on to new participants. On-campus interviews last only 20 minutes, and a typical interviewer meets 12 to 20 candidates a day. By the end of a long day on campus, interviewers often have a hard time putting together the names and faces of the students they met. In addition to demeanor, dress code, and bold moves, a key way to stand out during on-campus interviews is to be positive and upbeat and to make a lasting first impression. Just as with speed dating, first impressions make all the difference.
