Apply to be an Admissions Senior Interviewer

The Office of Admission is pleased to announce the application to be a Senior Interviewer for the 2021-22 academic year is now open. The Senior Interviewer position is a professional appointment in the Office of Admission interacting with and informing a range of constituents about Wesleyan University, and evaluating prospective students through personal interviews.  One of the unseen benefits to the Covid-19 pandemic was a reevaluation of the Senior Interviewer program as a virtual enterprise, which led to significant changes that have improved its efficacy and reach.  SIs now spend the majority of their time working virtually, meeting high school students where they are, doing WesChats, information sessions, and interviews on evenings and weekends.  As campus life returns to normal next fall, some on campus, in-person aspects of the program will continue to be important: Saturday morning interviews, information sessions, and Open House programming in the fall, and of course a return to a WesFest, Live! Format next spring.  A more comprehensive job description is available on Handshake and in the application itself.

The application is available on Handshake and here:

The reach of the Senior Interviewer program has never been broader, providing equity and access in the process to students from all backgrounds, regardless of their ability to visit campus, and we are excited for this coming year as we continue to leverage opportunities to meet more students than ever before.  Please consider applying for this important position, educating and influencing the applicant pool and participating in the evaluate of prospective students.

Any and all questions can be directed to Chris Lanser, Associate Dean of Admission,
