Interview

Interviewed by a department coordinator, just talked about my science background and all courses I'd taken before. Also talked about what I should expect from the class, like work load, how to work with professors and colleagues.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Interview

    There was only one interview after the application. Interview was just over an hour long and included both behavioral questions and questions about background/qualifications. Nothing out of the ordinary. After that it took several weeks to hear back, but that was largely due to the fact that the interview occurred at the end of the school year and the notifications were not sent out until summer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison in January 2009.

    Interview

    Well, I guess the hiring process was getting into the program in Political Science. I attended the prospective student orientation and decided to give it a go. Knowing that I would be a TA in American politics came later. It was weird since I don't have a background in American politics, but whatever.
