    Recruitment Weekend Interview Day: students were asked to apply for as many positions as they desired and then the employer selected the desired candidates. Selected candidates were asked to interview during the recruitment weekend interview day. Interviews lasted 30 minutes with 20 minutes of interviews and 10 minutes of questions. The interview process was formal and allowed for an hour break for students to have lunch with all the professional staff interviewing candidates. It was a pleasant interview day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Missouri State University (Springfield, MO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Went to Graduate Recruitment Weekend and interviewed with 5 different supervisors. The questions were pretty basic, but also each supervisor has questions specific to their department, but they were mostly, tell us about yourself, why are you choosing to come to MSU and work as a graduate assistant, ect.
    This process is unique because you rank the assistantships you want in order and the supervisors all get together and rank you. They try to match you with the supervisor who wanted you most in relation to the assistantship you want most. I chose the Admissions office and they chose me. I received an offer about 2 weeks after the weekend.
