Very Easy Interview

Graduate Teaching Assistant Interview

Graduate Teaching Assistant

I applied online and interviewed at University of Missouri.

Interview Details – In math department, since they need lots of people to teach, you basically just need to show them that you have the ability to teach. There are basically just one part in the interview process: mini teaching demo. You need to prepare for a 10 to 15 mins presentation for college algebra level material. You don't have to finish all the stuff they give you (they will email you the material 1 to 2 weeks ahead of time.) just go as slow and as detailed as possible.

Interview Question – Not so much. Just pretend you are a good elementary school teacher   Answer Question

Tutor Interview

Tutor
Columbia, MO

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Missouri in July 2009.

Interview Details – Immediate, on-the-spot, informal interview was available once I came to the office and filled out an application. It was a fairly low-end college job, after all. I was hired immediately at the interview. Work then started a few weeks later at the beginning of the fall semester, since the interview took place during the summer.

Interview Question – Quite straight-forward, typical questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, since it was a low-level job with no professional salary number of any sort.

I then went into the great outdoors and fought two fish tank tops. Dadaism is a forte of the priests of Little Italy. Internet's okay but just don't tell the president.
