The information below provides a sample overview and schedule for 2014.

GA Interview Day welcomes graduate students who are currently enrolled in the CAHE program and are seeking an assistantship in the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management (SAEM), as well as current Graduate Assistants in SAEM who are seeking a different assistantship in SAEM for the 2014-15 academic year.

GSARP welcomes incoming graduate students who will be new to the CAHE program in fall 2014 and are seeking an assistantship in the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management.

GA Interview Day:  Thursday, February 6, 2014
8 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., Campus Life Building, Room 100

The Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management and the Counseling, Adult & Higher Education (CAHE) graduate program are hosting a Graduate Assistantship Interview Day for graduate students who are currently enrolled in the CAHE program and are seeking an assistantship in the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, as well as for current Graduate Assistants in SAEM who are seeking a different assistantship within SAEM for the 2014-15 academic year.

Participants in the GA Interview Day will have opportunities to interview for up to eight assistantship positions in Student Affairs & Enrollment Management.  While there is no limit on the number of assistantships for which applicants may request interviews, demand that an assistantship generates will dictate offering departments' ability to grant interviews. The list of Graduate Assistantships that are available in SAEM for the 2014-15 academic year will be available in early December and will continue to be updated until all positions are filled. 

Registration for the GA Interview Day is free and will take place through the Huskies Get Hired system, housed in Career Services.  (This is the same system that will be used for GSARP.)  Prior to registering, candidates will be required to complete the Huskies Get Hired tutorial.  After the tutorial is complete, candidates will be able to login to register with Huskies Get Hired by using their ZID for the username (click "Forgot your password?" to receive a password for the first time.)

Once registered, candidates will be asked to create a profile, which includes uploading a resume, cover letter, references, and transcripts.  Candidates should also upload their resumes to the GSARP/GA Day Resume Book so that employers in Student Affairs & Enrollment Management can easily search for them.  Candidates will then be able to search and apply for positions within Student Affairs & Enrollment Management.  All SAEM positions will begin with “GA Day,” followed by the position title.
