Interview Process 

The RA interview process will be broken up into two segments.  The first part of the process will include a rotating individual interview.  During this time the candidate will have the chance to share about personal experiences and answer questions as they meet with different professional and student staff.  During the second part of the process candidates will participate in a practical interview.  In this part of the process, candidates will role play how they would interact in a common low level situation to which a RA would respond.  This practical interview is not designed to test the candidates knowledge of policy, but instead will focus on how candidates interact with people.  The individual interviews will take place between Monday, February 4, 2019 and Friday, February 15, 2019.  The practical process will take place on Sunday, February 17, 2019 and Saturday, February 23, 2019.

Required Meeting

To be qualified to apply for RA positions, you must attend an informational meeting. The dates for these meetings will be announced in November.
