International Students: Evaluating Soft Skills in the Interview

Thursday | June 23 | 2016 | 3:15 pm - 4:30 PM

What if all of the typical issues facing international students—integration in the classroom, success in student life, employment concerns and post-graduation engagement as alumni—could be traced back to how an admissions office evaluated applicants' soft skills? This session will look at the importance of evaluating soft skills in the admission process and highlight the use of interviews to identify applicants with a high EQ.  Session attendees will explore varying tactics for locating, evaluating and admitting international applicants who will thrive in group work, class discussions, and one-on-one interactions.
