    I worked at The Citadel full-time for more than 3 years


    The Citadel is great at promoting non-classroom education — you will be learning constantly as a cadet.


    The Citadel does struggle a bit with teaching innovation — this is an important skill for leaders to develop, but sometimes, as a military school, The Citadel gets trapped in old ways of thinking and doing things.

    State Application, but I knew someone who contacted the hiring Director. He reached out to me directly and asked for an interview.

    1st - "interview" no hard questions; they were all like "Tell me about yourself."

    A few behavioral questions.
