I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Mills College in April 2010.
Interview Details – In fact, the position did not require a formal interview. I'd had a TA position the year before, and prior teaching experience that was all listed on my resume, and I provided more detailed information about my experiences and goals regarding teaching. The MFA program is pretty small, and I'm sure the faculty and staff members either knew me firsthand or by reputation. Fewer first year students receive TA positions than second year students, but I received a position both years, first for the Place for Writers, then for the Composition and Rhetoric TA position.

Negotiation Details – The only element of the position that is negotiable is the times and days you work, and the second semester placement in either the Writing Center or for a second semester in the classroom as a TA--which there are only a couple spots for.
