    This is your standard interview process for residence life. They read questions from a sheet, fear to deviate from the sheet, and often do not ask follow up questions. There is an interview with undergraduate students, graduate/professional staff, the Assistant Vice President that's more of a chat session, lunch with some other staff.

    No negotiation really. Was promised funds for relocation and didn't get any. Make sure to get this information in writing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Western Illinois University (Macomb, IL) in May 2011.

    I sat down in front of a panel of current employees of the department as well as the head of the department itself. Interview was based on knowledge of systems, web development experience & grant writing. It took probably 45 minutes to an hour from start to finish and was a little unnerving being questioned by so many people but the questions themselves were not difficult.
