    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Eastern Michigan University.

    Interview

    To apply, there was a lengthy form to submit online, a university standard for all positions. A couple of weeks later, I got a call for an interview. I already had an "in" there, so I knew the people who were to interview me. There was one round of interviews, with three members of the management team. The questions were mainly behavior-based, but not too difficult. I felt comfortable throughout the process. After the interview, the job offer came pretty quickly, within a couple of days.
