    Graduate Research Assistant Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    My advisor called me without prior notice to discuss her field of research interest. The conversation took about 30 minutes and finally she said she would let me know her decision later. After a couple of weeks she got back to me via an e-mail to say she has picked me up to start a PhD program.

    Graduate Teaching Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Michigan Technological University (Houghton, MI) in August 2012.

    Interview

    My advisor forwarded me an email that the professor teaching the class needed some TAs, so I sent an email back saying that I was interested. She agreed to meet me less than a week later. The process was very easy, and I'm not sure it would even qualify as an interview, or be more of an informational meeting to let me know what would be expected of me during the course of the class.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't really anything unexpected or difficult. As stated above, the interview mostly consisted of what would be expected of me, and whether I would be able to meet the time requirements. I did have to decide what days I wanted to teach lab though, that was a little difficult, since I was free almost any day during the week.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was none.

    Interview

    Went to an information session, filled out a couple short essay questions and then went onto the interview process. Pretty generic interview, had 2 people interview me, one staff member and a student employee. Pretty standard interview questions, strengths/weaknesses, leadership experience, etc.
