PT School Interview Tips ✨👩🏻💼
🎬 Know where you want to sit for the interview (if virtual) – be mindful of what’s behind you and in view of the camera
🙊 Minimize background noises – tell everyone in the house what you’re doing to minimize background noises
🤳 Clean the camera – wipe the lens of the camera so you’re presented clean/clear (don’t be 𝒕𝒉𝒆 blurry candidate)
🗣️ Look up practice interview questions and think, write, and practice out loud your answers
🎥 If you’re really feeling up to it, record yourself talking, watch your facial expressions and count how many “ums” you do
🧐 The school – know their key philosophies and their program strengths
🚶🏻♀️ The campus life – tour the school if you can
📚 Resources – know what resources are available to students
🤷🏻♀️ Whatever you don’t find, save for questions to ask at the end of the interview
🤐 If it’s a group interview, take turns. Don’t always be the first to talk.
🙏🏼 Thank the interviewer for their time, express gratitude for the opportunity to interview – more than “thank you!”
📧 If you can write the interviewer’s full name down after the interview, you can send a follow-up email to thank them
