Does anybody know how the hiring process is? Like after you apply why does it take so long to hear back or be rejected?
if you have to apply you aren't getting it.
Not true. Most colleges take applications seriously. They usually have jobs open for 2 weeks. Phone interviews 2 weeks after that. Then Narrowed down to 3 candidates who visit campus 2 weeks after that.
Usually by the end of the campus visit an offer is made to the top candidate.
That's how it's supposed to go. Needless to say everybody isn't hiring by the book as they should or stick to the slow 6 week process.
