Group Interviews

Applicants who advance to the interview stage will be notified via email. These applicants will be added to a Sakai site to facilitate signing up for a group interview. Each applicant must sign up for one group interview or notify the Program Director that all interviews conflict with his or her schedule. Sign up occurs on a first-come-first-serve basis and closes 24 hours before the session starts. Each interview session must have at least 3 applicants sign up (or it will be canceled) and is limited to 16 applicants.

UPDATE: At this time a few course instructors have requested to individually interview applicants who advance from the group interview stage and are eligible and interested in working in their courses. Applicants will be notified via email if they need to participate in an individual interview with a course instructor.

Offers

All applicants eligible for Spring 2018 learning assistant positions will be informed of their application status via email by December 1, 2017. If you applied online for this position and have not receive an email by this date, please contact the LA Program Staff at learningassistants@echo.rutgers.edu.

Type of Offer

Applicants can expect to receive one of three types of offers.

  • Standard: Offered to applicants who have already completed the course(s) to which they will be assigned.
  • Conditional: Offered to applicants who are currently enrolled in the course to which they will be assigned. These positions are offered to the applicant on the condition that he or she earns at least a B+ in the course to which he or she will be assigned in the LA Program.
  • Alternate: Offered to applicants who we want to participate in the program, but for whom we have yet to confirm stipend funding. Our interview and hiring process occurs before we receive information about our budget for the next academic year; alternate positions help us avoid having to rescind positions due to limited funding.
