Former Bunk Leader at Ramapo for Children

Reflect on all of your experience working with children, especially children with behavioral challenges or Autism Spectrum Disorder. If you have not had professional experience, think about your experience with little cousins or family friends. They will ask you how you would handle situations so try to come up with a few specific examples of how you have handled conflict, built relationships, etc. Also, read the website! Make sure you are using similar language. This is important in any interview, but especially at Ramapo since you will be working with a more vulnerable population and you want to make sure you are using respectful language. On their employment page, they will state what traits make a good counselor. Refer to the traits you have but reply honestly. Since the bunk leader will be managing a team of about 5 other counselors, make sure that you can back yourself up with some specific examples of leadership (clubs, teams, etc.) but be aware that this is not a supervisor position and you will still be reporting to a number of supervisors. Overall, just rely on your own experience and if you don't have much, anticipate questions they may ask about how you would handle situations and how your traits would benefit you (compassion, patience, energy, etc.).
