    While there is an online form to select positions you might be interested in. Being a professor's research assistant requires actually meeting with the professor first and sending an email of interest to them. Important to network and get to know which professors you might want to work with instead of shooting in the dark.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Vassar College in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I posted my application via the https://employment.vassar.edu site for a temporary (6+ month) position as IT Project Manager. Within a couple of days, I was contacted to set up a 30 minutes telephone screening interview, which took place about a week or so after I applied. The CIO and his direct reports all asked questions during the phone interview. About 2 weeks later, I got a phone call informing me that I was not selected.

    Institutional Research Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Vassar College in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    To be honest, the most difficult part of the application process was discovering that Vassar spent the time to partake in well-documented Institutional Research. The school often portrays a calm nonchalance regarding its status as a "highly rated" institution, with the apparent intent to ignore said rankings. However, the school remains entrenched in the war of college ranks and is often looking for interns if you ask.
