Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in January 2011.

Interview

Follow advice on website about how to format your resume to be scanned by UW system. Also, read job description carefully and make sure you have key words in that align your experience with the requirements of the job description. For example, I didn't think to include "familiar with Word" because I'm a writer who has used Word for years--didn't think to list it, though, and needed to.

Bring a printed copy of your resume/CV to the interview, or a couple copies if you're being interviewed by a group. Research the people you will interview with and know the topic/job being advertised. Bring writing samples or samples of your past work.

UW is informal, but people are busy. Come prepared. Write a thank you note after you leave the interview and hand deliver it to the administrative assistant or put in mail room or mail that day. Spell people's names correctly.

A sense of humor is almost always welcome.

Negotiation

Salaries at UW are hard to negotiate, as the people hiring you almost always have limited funds. Also, HR has a say in what people get paid. It's hard to get what you'd make elsewhere, but the benefits are good, people are generally nice, and there is some flexibility in how you structure your work day. There are other benefits such as being able to sit in on lectures and classes, if furthering your knowledge is important to you.
