Finding the Best Candidate

Because our Community Assistants serve as the “experience experts” of our communities, we are very selective on those we hire to join the Campus Advantage team.  Our selection process is specifically designed to be able to identify candidates who have both the experience, leadership skills and team-player mentality that we require.

If you choose to apply to be a Community Assistant and are chosen to move forward in the selection process, you may experience some or all of the selection processes below.  Please note that the actual selection process for candidates may vary from the items below based on time of year and number of candidates.

Group Selection Process:  Depending upon the timing of the process and the needs of the community, candidates who make the first screening may be invited to attend a one-day process that allows the staff to observe the candidates in a “non-interview” context in order to evaluate the candidates’ interpersonal skills and leadership strengths. During this session, groups of candidates will be asked to participate in a variety of group activities.

Individual Interviews:  After the Group Interview, individual interviews are scheduled with top candidates. These 30-minute interviews will most likely include a current CA and a manager.  The candidate will be asked a set of questions, and will have the opportunity ask any final questions they have of the position.
