    Difficult for an on-campus job, but necessary. This is truly a professional interview, so look and act the part. This is the most elite position that one can have on campus, so it is selective in nature.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg, MS) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy going and laid back. It was easier than I thought it would be. I thought it was a great process overall. The largest aspect was trying to get in the door and getting through the entire process of HR and getting through the interview scheduling. Academics go slow so I understand why it took a while but still it is hard to wait so long.
