Former Summer Conference and Events Planning at Reed College
over 1 year ago
Remember to emphasize on your experience and/or ability to work in a small group as a team player, as well as being able to make decisions on your own when the situation demands.
Talk about how comfortable you are interacting with large groups of people. Part of the summer job entails interacting with staff members on campus, working with them closely, as well as assisting conference guests on a number of tasks.
Be prepared to answer questions like, "If your group leader makes a decision you disagree with, how do you resolve that conflict?", or "If you have a disagreement with another team member, how do you resolve that conflict?"
Talk about positions of leadership or responsibility that you may have had in the past, and extra points if you can describe a situation where the odds were stacked against you but you came out on top.
