    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Duke University.

    Interview Details

    You come in for an interview with Erin, most likely, and one of the student supervisors. They ask you what you know about computers and so long as you know how to maintain your own computer with antivirus software, weekly cleanups, etc you should do fine. The software the OIT uses for clientele's computers just so happened to be the freeware I use on my own computer so I inadvertently showed I was savvy and they seemed pleased.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Duke University in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Talked to a professor and asked for TA, since I got a great grade in his class, he recommended me to another professor to be the TA. The hiring process took a month and a half, which is ridiculous. But after that I can fill in online timecard which is very convenient.
