Graduate Assistant Position Interviews

If you are a full-time student interested in a graduate assistantship, interviews will be available during the day on Feb. 26 to allow you to connect with assistantship supervisors. See the full listing of anticipated positions for 2018-2019 with descriptions. When you RSVP, you’ll be able to indicate your preferences so that we can match you with potential positions. We also encourage you to reach out to hiring supervisors prior to A Day at William & Mary in order to learn more about the available positions and pre-schedule an interview slot for Monday, Feb. 26. Each interview slot is 15 minutes long with 5-minutes allotted for transition. You will also have an opportunity to sign up for additional interview slots on Monday morning at A Day at William & Mary. Review our Candidate Tips (pdf) to make sure you're prepared for your day of interviews.
