We conduct interviews for a few of our scholarships. We cancelled the interviews for one of our scholarships which would have taken place on April 8th because the award event that follows where the recipient is announced was postponed (and will most likely get cancelled). We conduct interviews for 2 other scholarships in early to mid May and I am trying to find the best way to supplement the interviews while also not putting an extreme burden on the applicants or our committee members. We have floated the idea around of having applicants create a short video clip answering questions that we typically would ask during the interview. I’m worried that this may be too much of a burden with students already having to figure out how to transition to distance learning. We’ve also talked about conducting interviews through zoom which I think will be easier for all parties. Any tips on conducting back to back interviews using zoom or any other alternatives to in person meetings. As of now, we still plan to hold in person interviews for a couple of our summer scholarships.
Any tips or ideas is helpful!
