The group assessment is a half day group interview where we hope to get an impression of the skills you possess. We are looking at your leadership style, your ability to work in groups, your response to difficult situations, your problem solving skills, and your (positive) attitude. We will also ask behaviour based questions. For the entire day, please dress and act professionally, while showcasing your personality. Remember to treat this like any other job interview.
Behaviour Based Questions:
Behaviour based questions seek to identify positive behaviours associated with the Residence Fellow role. This requires you to reflect and provide concrete examples from past experiences. Examples of behaviour based interview questions include:
- “Describe a time when you were faced with a stressful situation that demonstrated your coping skills.”
- “Provide a specific example of a time when you used good judgment and logic in solving a problem.”
- “Tell us about a difficult decision you’ve made in your life. How did that impact you moving forward?”
