    IT Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Michigan.

    Interview Details

    Informal, but worthwhile questions were asked. I felt like the questions that I was asked were relevant to the position and not the standard boilerplate time wasting interview questions that most interviewers ask. The interviewers were the people that I would work with, and not HR people, which was nice, and they found positives in my experience that even I didn't know.

    Interview Details

    I was emailed by HR and then I set up a meeting with the supervisor. It was a short, 20 minute interview, where the questions were not quite hard. Told me I didn't have an office, but that it would be a flexible job. Asked questions regarding who I was, where I was from, and some more basic questions. Supervisor seemed really interested in my previous experience and towards the end, told me I was perfect for the job and asked what my availability would be like in the future. They hired me immediately after the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at University of Michigan.

    Interview Details

    Kind of a long process, as my home department and the department where I teach are different. The interview with the professor took about 30-45 minutes. It mostly consisted of her telling me about the course and then she asked a few questions about me and my experiencing with the subject and with teaching.

    Writing Tutor/Consultant Interview

    Interview Details

    You apply for entry into a year-long training program. If accepted, you spend one semester in the Writing 300 course (about 20 people in my section). Based on your performance there, you may be invited into Writing 301, where the classes consist of mandatory staff meetings (one hour each). The cuts mainly happen at Writing 300.

    Interview Questions
    • Not a question per se, but I got the sense that applicants' thoughtfulness on Writing 300 essays was the main criterion. Most prompts asked us to reflect on the writing process, power dynamics in the university, and things of that nature.   Answer Question

    Research Assistant Interview

    Interview Details

    Laid back. I was offered the job the same day. They just wanted to make sure they weren't hiring some bum, I suppose. I was interviewed by a team of research staff. The principal investigator was late but was still very impressed with the overall interview and my performance. Although she thought that I lacked experience, she offered me another position in her department. Many former students work for the university as well as individuals in transition. You get a lot of experience that can take you places.
