Application Process

At the University of Arkansas, we hope to give each candidate the opportunity

to continue to develop their interview skills.


This process is designed to replicate a job interview for entry to mid-level jobs within the Higher Education profession. Video interviews allow candidates to show their passion, personality, and insight while allowing recruitment teams to determine the best fit at the onset of the interviewing process.

Our next Graduate Assistant Interview day will be held in the spring of 2018.
