Site Name: University of Missouri
Department: Counseling Center
After an initial review, applicants we are considering will be contacted by email in mid-December to arrange a Zoom interview with members of the selection committee. Zoom interviews will be conducted in late December and early January. Zoom interviews are approximately 45 minutes in length and consist of standardized questions as well as a time for questions from the applicant. Questions cover a variety of topics and are designed to get to know each applicant on a personal level and assess for fit with our site. While interviews are inherently stressful, we work hard to make this a pleasant process for all involved.
Following another review, the Training Director will conduct brief, follow-up Zoom interviews in mid-January with all applicants still under consideration. These conversations provide a less formal opportunity to get final questions answered and have a chance to visit with the Training Director. Applicants will be contacted via email to schedule these interviews, as well.
Following a final discussion of candidates by the selection committee, we will submit our rank list to NMS. Applicants are encouraged to contact current interns at any time in the process to solicit first hand information regarding our training program. Applicants will also have an opportunity to participate in a virtual open house with current interns at some point in the selection process (prior to ranks being due). Questions about the application or selection process should be directed to the Training Director, Dr. Jenny Lybeck-Brown.
