Selection Process Timeline

Applicants must be able to attend all parts of the interview process in order to be considered for a Resident Assistant position.  We offer a limited number of interview spots, as there are few Spring 2016 positions available. Once all interview availability has been filled, we will maintain a list of applicants. If new spots open up, you will be contacted with an offer for an interview.

Only qualified candidates will participate in the interview process - first-round interviews and second-round interviews. Candidates will be contacted via phone or WTAMU email to schedule an interview(s); finalists will be contacted for second-round interviews.

*NOTE: Not all candidates will receive a second-round interview.
