The hiring process has three stages: submission of writing, basic testing, and a final interview. Under the supervision of Alexis Monroe, Chair of the Hiring Committee, a committee of RWIT student staff reviews applicant materials and invites select candidates to advance in the process. Final hiring decisions are made at the end of the winter and spring; candidates begin work the following fall.
We offer two application cycles: winter and spring. The 2013 spring application deadline is Sunday, April 14th at 11:59pm.
Begin your application here. Make sure to have all application materials ready before starting the application. Please note that we also require letters of recommendation: one for freshmen, two for upperclassmen. Recommendations should be submitted by the professors by 11:59pm on April 14, 2013. If you have any questions, please email Alexis Monroe '13, Chair of Hiring.
Candidates will be asked to submit the following:
*Candidates who are interested in the Multi-Lingual Collaboration may submit an additional paper in their language of interest in addition to the two required papers. All papers should have been recently submitted to a Dartmouth professor.
**Applicants should direct their professor to the online recommendation form.
In the second stage, selected candidates take a grammar test, comment on a sample paper, and respond to a number of hypothetical situations from the perspectives of a tutor and a Writing Assistant.
In the third stage, selected candidates have an interview with Stephanie Boone, Director of Student Writing Support, and a member of the RWIT staff.
After all stages of the hiring process are complete, applicants receive letters of response; hired candidates have one week to sign and return their contracts. Before the beginning of the following fall term, new hires participate in an intensive training session led by the Senior and Junior Staff. Once training is complete, each new hire is assigned to either a Tutor or a WA position and begins work.
RWIT staff are expected to work for the Center each term that they are on until graduation. They are also required to complete four to six hours of Ongoing Training (OGT) each term that they are on campus. Additionally, staff are expected to attend business meetings at the beginning of each term and to keep accurate records of their work.
