什么是Kira Interview?

Kira Interview是由Kira Talent所提供的一种在线面试方案。Kira Talent是一家加拿大在线面试平台。目前,许多国外大学正在将其作为招生过程的一部分。它允许学校通过预先录制的问题和答案对潜在申请人进行面试。它可以让面试者对申请人有一个全面的了解。他/她可以评估申请人的领导潜力、沟通能力、理解力、驱动力等。

由于一般申请人只有30-60秒的准备时间,所以,这非常考验申请人的思考能力以及表达能力。而除了要快速想好自己的内容外,还需要确保回答能够保持基本的逻辑性。除去口语部分,还有部分学校,如圣路易斯华盛顿大学的Olin Business School在面试的题目中加入写作题。

事实上,起初只有美国大学的商学院会要求申请人完成Kira interview。但从这两年来看,包括帝国理工学院、新加坡国立大学等非美的一流大学也逐步在申请中增加了这个环节。此外,像美国的哥伦比亚大学、康奈尔大学等名校的理工科申请,也需要申请人完成Kira interview。由此可见,该面试在申请名校时候的重要性。

如何准备Kira Interview?

首先,我们要注意的是,不同学校之间对于Kira Interview的要求是不同的。比如,像约翰霍普金斯大学的Carey Business School,要求申请人在网申系统中就完成Kira Interview,只有当完成这一步之后才能递交申请。而像圣路易斯华盛顿大学的Olin Business School,则是等申请人递交申请之后才会向申请人邮箱发送Kira Interview的邀请。其他诸如南加州大学的Marshall School of Business的MS in Marketing,会等申请截止日过后的一段时间,统一将面试邀请发送到申请人邮箱。所以,我们建议第一步就是要留意Kira Interview在申请中的时间节点,提前做好准备。

确定时间之后,我们就需要提前准备可能会碰到的面试题目,也就是寻找所谓的“面经”。一般来说,我们可以在各大论坛上找到大部分的题目。建议同学们可以尽可能多地整理题目,并可以针对每题都写下自己的答案,再进行反复的修改。此外,我们需要注意的是,由于不少院校每年都会更新题库,所以,我们难免会遇到新题。所以,同学也一定要提前做好碰到新题的心理准备。

事实上,绝大部分学校也会在Kira Interview中提供练习题,虽然这些题目不会出现在正式的interview中,但可以很好地帮助我们熟悉这个录制过程。所以,我们一定要妥善利用好这个机会。当然,我们还需要注意的是,每个学校对于练习题的联系次数是有不同要求的,有的学校只允许你联系三次,有的则更多。若练习题过后,就会出现正式的题目,进入到正式的录制中。所以,我们一定要提前了解到相关的信息,以免在不知情的情况进入了正式的录制。最后assessment部分成功提交上传面试视频后,会有一个大概的处理时间,申请人们会在这之后收到确认邮件。

我们还需要注意容易被忽略的一点,那就是录制设备的调试和准备。简单来说,我们需要一台网络稳定的电脑以及准备好摄像头和麦克风。而浏览器方面,我们一般建议使用火狐或者谷歌。当然,你也可以选择使用手机录制。如果用App的话,你需要用你注册这个软件的邮箱登录。我们一定要重视这个环节,若任何一个设备出现问题,都会很大地影响到我们的面试。所以,大家一定不能忽略对于设备的调试。

上述都准备好之后,我们还需要注意自己在镜头前的个人形象,我们总结了以下几个要点:

1.录制场地:一般情况下都建议室内录制,且保证光线不要过于强烈或者昏暗。此外,也需要注意保持室内环境的整洁。

2.衣着:根据Kira Talent的官方建议,我们应该穿着商务休闲装,如正装衬衫、衬衫、毛衣或长袖等。一般不建议穿着一些奇装异服。当然,由于一般只录制申请人的上半身,至于裤装或者鞋子,就不作要求了。

3.视线和面容:建议保持我们的视线略高于水平线,尽量不要低头,且尽可能保持微笑。

4.妆容:女生可以化一些淡妆,男生只要保证自信即可。
