Step 4:

Applications will be screened to determine who will move forward to the interview process. This includes the completion of a GPA and conduct check as well as a review of the application materials.

Step 5:

After application screening, all candidates who are moved forward in the selection process will be asked to participate in the interview portion of the process. Interviews will take place Wednesday, February 12, 2020, through Friday, February 14, 2020. More information will be provided about this process to those who are advanced.

Step 6:

Those who are moved forward in the process should expect to receive a conditional offer letter via email the week of February 17, 2020. You will need to respond to this email to officially accept your offer in order to begin the on-boarding process. Those who are not selected or are offered a role as an alternate will also receive letters at this time.

Step 7:

Offers are conditional pending completion of a livescan background check. All candidates who accept their conditional offer will be asked to complete a livescan. You will be sent more details regarding how and when to complete the livescan after conditional offers are made. Please note you will not be charged to complete this livescan.

Step 8:

Once livescans are completed, you will also need to complete a hiring packet, which includes completion of I-9 Employment Verification paperwork for payroll. Thus it is recommended that you gather all documents needed for completion of this paperwork in advance so it does not delay your on-boarding process. For more information about documents you may need, please refer to the following link:

Step 9:

All Residence Hall Association Executive Board Members are required to attend transitional meetings and complete position shadowing with current board members in the Spring semester. This included an RHA transition Outing on April 11 and meeting the week of April 17-24.
