I loved the recent post about interns for choral director. We are interviewing for our yearly college choral music interns for our community choir, and thought it would be great to get feedback on our questions, possibly getting more ideas for questions. Feel free to critique or offer alternate/additional questions from this list. Thanks!
1. Tell us a little about yourself and and why you decided to become a vocal education major.
2. What would be the perfect job for you after you graduate?
3. Why are you interested in YCCM?
4. Describe a mentor or role model you have and describe his or her characteristics/traits that had the most impact on you.
5. What would that mentor say about you?
6. What is your greatest musical moment thus far (attendance or performance)? If you have a few, pick one.
7. Briefly describe your organizational skills and systems or processes you use to organize information.
8. Describe a situation where you had to work with or for someone who is difficult (no names, please). What was the nature of the difficulty and how did you deal with it?
9. Could you give us an example of your role as a team player in a project or endeavor? What specifically did you contribute?
10. Could you successfully sight-read a vocal line on piano during a sectional?
11. Given ample time to practice, could you successfully lead two sections in a sectional?
12. If you had a disagreement with a parent or employee of YCCM, how would you help resolve it?
13. Why should we hire you?May 20, 2016 at 3:25 pm #516034

I posted a ChoralBlog yesterday about interview questions for committees hiring a new choral director. One or two (or maybe more!) could apply to your situation. My Blog next week will focus on those being interviewed with a few additional questions for that sort of situation…….. some could apply here as well.
Love your questions too!
