    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Swarthmore College in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied after seeing the job opening on their website. It took about 2-3 months to get a call-back. Despite this being a low-level administrative position, I went through SEVERAL interviews: Two phone interviews, followed by a daylong interview itinerary with virtually every level of the department, then another phone interview.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Swarthmore College in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview for the teaching assistant position in the economics department mainly consisted of speaking with the department chair as well as the specific professor with whom you desired to TA for. Few technical questions were asked, as they already had an idea of your abilities, and they mainly focused on your ability to manage your courseload plus extracurriculars to make sure you had enough time for the position.
