Wollongong MeM Interviews

About MEM Interviews:

Interviews are a two-way process where you can find out more about a potential employer, the work culture and position and they can assess you and how you potentially fit into the role and the workplace.

Typical Interview Method:

  1. The most typical interview format is the one-on-one one, in which you will meet with a panel of interviewers or a member of the academic staff. The 30- to 45-minute interview will mainly cover your educational background, professional background, reasons for enrolling in the MeM programme, and future professional aspirations.
  2. Group interview: You can receive an invitation to take part in a group interview in certain circumstances. This structure facilitates the interviewers’ evaluation of your problem-solving, collaboration, and communication abilities. A group discussion on a pertinent topic or a case study may be included in the group interview.
  3. Test of situational judgement (SJT): An SJT can be used to evaluate your capacity for making decisions and managing pressure. Usually, the SJT will show you some scenarios.
