Thank you for your interest in being a Resident Advisor (RA) at Texas A&M University. Our RA Selections Committee is now accepting Resident Advisor applications for the spring semester. New RA staff members who are selected in our selection process are required to participate in RA training which starts on Monday, August 5.
Applications will be accepted through 11:59pm, Sunday, March 31, 2019.
We have a great tradition of excellence in our residence halls and apartments. Resident Advisors are an essential part of the on-campus experience and our Residence Life team. As an RA, you will have the opportunity to build leadership skills, nurture a community of Aggies, and develop skills that will be transferable long beyond your years in Aggieland. We are looking for individuals who are committed to building community, developing inclusive environments, and serving as a resource for their fellow Aggies. We are excited that you are interested in our selection process.
Our RA candidate process consists of completing an RA application with applications being accepted through 11:59pm, Sunday, March 31, 2019. Our Resident Advisor Recruitment and Selection Committee will review applications and select candidates to participate in our group process interview. Candidates selected an interview will be contacted with an email to check the application around Thursday, February 7, 2019.
In the resume section of the application, please list your basic work experience and involvement. As for the cover letter, we’re just seeking a little information on why you’re applying for the RA position. We are NOT expecting professional level resumes and cover letters. It is also fine if you have no previous work/volunteer experience for the work experience section. Please just put “NA” in that section. We just want to see your personality shine through this process, and allow us to select the best candidates possible to be Resident Advisor’s for our department!
Group Process Interviews will occur on the evenings of Monday, February 11 & Tuesday, February 12. Candidates will receive a score during the group process interview and if they meet our criteria score will receive an invitation for an Individual interview. Individual interviews for RA candidates will occur on Monday, February 25 through Friday, March 1. Please understand that we are unable to interview every candidate who applies due to time constraints. Applications will be scored based on candidate essay question response to determine which candidates receive a group process interview!
