Recorded video essays and interviews are an innovation, allowing business schools to get to know their candidates better and assess their natural communication style. This application season, top business schools such as the Kellogg School of Management, the Yale School of Management, and INSEAD are asking applicants to complete video portions of their applications, surprising and even worrying some business school candidates.
To spur you along, we offer a unique new service. Our Video Essay and Video Interview Prep Service is an in-depth preparation session that follows a simple, three-step process to help you prepare for these challenging (but hopefully fun!) new application components:
- Get camera ready: We will offer best practices for effectively arranging your computer/environment to ensure that you project maturity and professionalism.
- Practice on your own: We will share a preparation guide and questions from actual past video interviews, so that you will have the tools to independently practice and improve your improvisation skills.
- Practice with an mbaMission Senior Consultant: Most importantly, we will create a live simulation of your target school’s video interview and work with you one-on-one to ensure that you are comfortable and confident in your ability to relax, be yourself, improvise on camera, and communicate succinctly within the school’s required time limits.
If you would like to benefit from our preparation sessions (which cost $550), please visit our Web site to purchase one.
