There are a lot of people who come to MSPP shortly after graduating from college - maybe spending a year or two working. And then there are people who come back after working for 5, 10, 20 years. Or more. I fall into the latter category.

Some Tips on Interviewing!

Posted on January 24,2011 by kmorvillomspp

Hi everyone, my name is Kristen and I'm currently in my second year in the Clinical PsyD Program here at MSPP. This past weekend I had the privilege to be a part of one of the interview teams for Friday’s Interview Day here at MSPP. I was amazed by the multitude of skilled candidates that attended regardless of the snowstorm that hit much of New England. Based on what I observed, and yes, been through myself, I’ve put together a few pointers for those interviewing at MSPP, field placement/internship sites, or elsewhere.

1. Get a good night sleep! I’m sure you’ve heard this before and it may sound redundant, but there’s a reason that it’s been ingrained in our heads. Staying up and worrying all night about an interview will be in no way helpful. Instead, try and have a relaxing evening the night before. Easier said than done? Probably right, but you can do a few things to lessen your anxiety and hopefully get a good night’s rest. Put on your favorite movie, TV-show, or curl up with your favorite book before going to bed. Avoid caffeine in the evening and try not to eat anything, especially with a lot of sugar, before you jump under the covers. Anything that you need to do in order to get a good night sleep, do!
