While everyone else was relaxing this weekend, I was busy interviewing potential candidates for the Resident Assistant/Academic Assistant positions for 2010-2011. Yes, my friends interviewing – behind the desk, all dressed up, asking question and writing comments. Oh, the joys of not being in the candidate seat for a change. Though I will be in the candidate seat in a few months when I enter the job market. But on Saturday I was the interviewer along with another member of the University Residence Halls and Apartments.
To apply for the RA position you need to have a good GPA, be in good judicial standing and must have lived on campus for at least a year. Sorry incoming freshmen – you guys can apply at the end of your freshmen year and join the staff during your sophomore year. I would strongly encourage people who are interested in acquiring leadership, inter personal and time management skills to apply for this job. It has been a great experience for me and I am sure you will have a blast doing it too. So if you are articulate, personable, like to help people and a leader – this might be the best on campus job for you!
