What is the hiring process consist of?

All positions outlined above are hired by the ASU’s Hiring Committee, which is composed of six (6) current Acadia students. After the application period closes, the Hiring Committee will review all applications received by the deadline and will contact qualified candidates to schedule an interview. These interviews are designed to consider your skills and experience in relation to the job requirements, as outlined in the Job Description. Applicants will be provided with one (1) question the evening prior to the scheduled interview and the remainder of the questions will be made available fifteen (15) minutes before the interview is scheduled to begin.

As student ourselves, we want this process to be as inclusive and welcoming as possible. We know that interviews can be very difficult for students, and particularly those who are differently abled. If you require any accommodation (i.e. written by hand or computer, telephone or one-on-one interview), please do not hesitate to send me an email and we would be happy to put whatever we need in place to ensure that you will be able to successfully demonstrate your skills/experience. We are here to support you throughout the recruitment process! 😊



If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me anytime by email at or stop by my office (Old SUB 628) during my weekly office hours.
