application is available through Friday, March 25, at 12:00 noon EST.
Please note that this information is for the 2015-2016 academic year and may change for the 2016-2017 academic year.
The HR position is a professional-level position that involves greater responsibility and offers higher compensation than the RA position. Candidates with RA experience should seriously consider applying to be an HR. If you do not have RA experience but feel you have a strong background in leadership, you should also consider applying to be an HR. If you do not have RA experience or a background in leadership, please consider applying to be an RA, as we are also seeking strong graduate student RA candidates. If you are interested in and qualified for both, you can indicate on the HR application that you would like to be considered for an RA position if you are not selected to be an HR.
If you qualify for the RA position, you will be invited to an individual interview with members of the Residence Life team (professional staff and current RAs) in late February. There will be time at the end of the interview for you to ask questions. Finalists for the RA position will be invited to attend a group interview with members of the Residence Life team (professional staff and current RAs) in early March.
Please note that the HR process involves a separate interview. Candidates who are being considered for the HR position(s) will be contacted individually with next steps.
No. Students hired for an RA or HR position are hired for an academic year (fall and spring semesters) and must be enrolled as full-time students on campus for both semesters in the academic year for which they are hired.
In 2015-2016, there were a total of 43 RA positions and 4 HR positions campus-wide. The number of available positions for next year depends on the number of current RAs and HRs who return. We do select some alternate candidates, who will be contacted if a position opens up over the summer or during the fall semester.
Your best opportunity to talk to us is at an information session during November, December, and January (schedule will be posted here when it is available). If you live in a residence hall, you can talk to your RA, HR, Residence Hall Director, or Area Coordinator about the selection process. Otherwise, feel free to email
firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about the RA selection process or
email@example.com for questions about the HR selection process.
When you fill out your application, be sure to check the box on the application indicating interest in being an RA over the summer. If you are applying only for the summer, you can indicate that on your application also.
No. Unfortunately, we can offer RA positions only to currently matriculated New School students.
