    Current Employee - Interlibrary Loan Assistant in Valparaiso, IN

    I have been working at Valparaiso University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gained valuable experience while retaining the convenient hours and location on campus, worked personally with bosses as opposed to dealing with a chain of information.

    Cons

    There is no reward for individual effort, all bonuses and raises are institutional so that my experience, time working, training are not important in terms of what I get paid. Only the specific type of job matters.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Valparaiso University in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was quite long. Here are the steps I followed to successfully get the job:

    1) Applied to job opening view the university website by providing my resume, cover letter, and list of professional references.
    2) Got a call for a preliminary phone interview with my direct supervisor
    3) Scheduled for an in-person interview that lasted 4 hours with managers and staff
    4) Scheduled for another in-person interview with Vice President of department to ensure I was the right fit
    5) Got an email confirming that I had received the job! :)

    The interview process was very long but that is because Valparaiso University wants to bring in the right candidate to grow the university. It shows how much they care about the quality of their staff and faculty members.
