    Interview

    I was asked to teach, demonstrate research, etc. It was pretty conventional for an academic job interview. There was nothing strange or unusual about it. I don't have much more to say.

    Go into the office to submit your paperwork. You'll talk to some staff in the department you are applying to. If you are working as a scholarship worker, you're already good to go; you just have to tell the hours that you are available and file some paperwork and you are done. If you are not a scholarship worker, you need to go through a proper interview process, mostly involving school related matters, like your major, why you want the job etc.
