Undergraduate Teaching Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Urbana, IL

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in January 2014.

Interview Details – In my case, the interview was pretty easy. Just emailed to say I was interested in TAing the class after I received my final grade for the class. He then emailed all the qualified students saying that he was looking to hire TAs. I responded to this email, and he scheduled a time to meet with me and simply chat about my experience in his class. If you are really passionate about the material, the interview is no problem.

Interview Question – The interview was a simple chat, so there was no tricky question. Just be honest and explain why you care about the position/why you think you can succeed with the job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – $10.00/hr is the regular hourly pay for all undergrad TA positions in the Computer Science department.
