It was useful for me and I want to pay it forward ... Karma

I was interviewed this week. The interview is more a conversation than anything else, very friendly in general!

Basically I had to tell a story of my resume while the interviewer was asking very simple questions. Why did you chose that job? why you moved to another industry? how doing this and that improved the sales by xx%?
-Define my leadership style and how I have been applying it
-Short and long term goals
-They never asked me why emory or what about Atlanta because throughout my answers I was mentioning key aspects
- Extracurriculars - The person read the bullet point I had there and asked me to expand a bit more

Really nothing to matter even if its your first interview. The only thing I will highly recommend is to read again your resume point by point and ask to yourself the basic questions: how, why, what. You should be able to tell a short and good story of every point, specially the most recent experience.


Good luck to everyone!!!!!

thank you so much.I will have interview next thursday and your experience surely helps me much to prepare for my interview <3


Just be prepared and relaxed. It is not job interview. All the questions are quite standard, nothing special. They want to be sure that you will fit the school culture.

Good luck

Received the invite about 2 hours ago. If we're monitoring trends, it seems that applicants receive the invitation 2 weeks after the 'Application Complete' mail.

I have my interview next week.

Any recommendations on a good way to spend the day? I don't really have much interest in the World of Coke, Aquarium etc and would rather spend my time getting a real feel for the quality of life down there. Good parks? Areas with a high density of cafes/bars/shopping etc?

Also if anyone else is interviewing Monday and wants to meet up, PM me.

Centennial Park is a big park in downtown Atlanta if you're at all interested about inner city green space. Buckhead will give you a good idea of what kind of shopping you can do in town and if you get hungry there's a restaurant in Lenox Square (mall in Buckhead) which has 1/2 price steaks if you're seated before 18:15. If you want something a bit less touristy than World of Coke or the CNN tour, the Jimmy Carter Library is pretty cool and you can see his Nobel Peace Prize up close.

I'm still waiting for my invitation... I got very quick (~1 week) invites at some of Goizueta's peer schools but I'm starting to worry that if I don't get invited next week I can pretty much forget about Emory. :( I'm an aviation guy, Atlanta would be great for me.

Interview went well today. As mentioned, very conversational. No curveball questions except maybe "What do you typically search for when you Google". I just mentioned my interests. We talked a little about traveling and music and the recent Poets and Quants article on Goizueta. Lasted 40 minutes.

She also mentioned that they might start notifications earlier than the 15th. For what its worth...

We did see an interview invite come in on March 1. But I think if we don't get invites in the next two days, we should be staring at a certain ding!

Hey @DMNY31,

Sorry I didn't see your post earlier or I would have offered to meet up for a coffee/drink. I would also recommend checking out the Virginia Highlands neighborhood. This is a great example of how Atlanta actually is a very walkable city and has some great pockets of urban space that do a good job of combining parks, low-density commercial and residential, shopping and "3rd Place" options in one area. Also, I would check out the High Museum if you have time - some great exhibits there right now.

Please let me know if you have any specific questions about life in Atlanta. I hope the interview went well and you weren't turned off by the emptiness of campus - we're on Spring Break right now!

Best,
Jon
