GRA Interview, What to Expect


After submitting your initial application, you will receive a request to supplement your application with an asynchronous interview. This brief, seven question interview will be an opportunity for us to gather additional information about you as a candidate, which will be reviewed by individual communities. 

After the initial interview, applications for eligible candidates are provided to the selection teams in the houses to review for their open GRA positions.  During this interview period, selection teams for individual houses will reach out to viable candidates to schedule a meeting.  Please keep in mind, each houses’ timeline and process are a little different. Most houses have 1-2 student/selection team interviews that culminate with a final interview with house leadership.  Some houses have "socials" where multiple candidates are invited to one event to meet the selection team and other students of the floor/hall in one session.  There may be houses hiring for more than one GRA and will utilize a group/social style event as an opportunity for more than one selection team to meet the same candidates.  Successful candidates would then be invited to a second 1:1 interview later in the process.  The timing of the 1:1 interview will vary for each house.  We encourage you to attend all of the interviews that you are offered, as you may find yourself connecting with more than one community. 

At the conclusion of the interview period, houses will submit initial feedback indicating their top candidates. We then solicit feedback from ranked candidates to assist in making placements.Please be aware the process is not mutually selective, as we want to make sure all houses have the opportunity to select candidates that are a good fit for their community. This means candidates may not be placed in their preferred community or placed at all. If you are not solicited for feedback or receive a placement, your application will remain active in our pool. Vacancies occur throughout the academic year and typically positions remain available after the initial placement; therefore, recruitment occurs on an ongoing basis. Pending a successful background check, candidates accept their offer and sign the GRA agreement as the final step. 

Please note, all GRAs hired for the 2024-2025 academic year are required to attend a one-week training in August, which typically begins in mid-August. Additionally, GRAs are required to be in residence during black out periods, including GRA Training until registration week as well as the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 finals periods. GRAs who are continuing for another year are extended agreement renewals in early May.
