    I worked at University of Michigan

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and friendly staff! Everyone knows you are a student and have to commit to classes and studying first. Flexible hours too.

    Cons

    Pay won't be extremely high and a lot of times there won't be as much work given to you. You can get bored easily if you don't proactively look for more work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at University of Michigan.

    Interview Details

    The committee scheduled an interview for the MLA convention after the submission of the initial dossier. The interview was a great experience. The search committee members were extremely welcoming and professional, and did not have egos despite being extremely prominent figures in their field. The interview lasted nearly an hour and consisted mostly of discussions of my dissertation research. The questions began very abstractly, as the committee wanted to see how I could think philosophically on my feet and connect my work to broader disciplinary issues. I felt that it was not at all a test of my knowledge or how I would teach, but rather an opportunity to demonstrate how I think critically and engage my field through cutting edge research. They left me much time to ask questions about the program and job, and answered all of them happily and thoroughly.
