Higher Education, Student Affairs, and International Education Policy (HESI Preview 2022)

Assistantship Information

The Assistantship portion of our Preview Program is designed to assist admitted Higher Education, Student Affairs, and International Education Policy students in finding an assistantship for the upcoming academic year.  During the Preview program, you will have the opportunity to interview for the various assistantships that are listed on this website. These interviews will be pre-arranged and a personalized schedule will be provided to you prior to the beginning of the Preview program.  Your interview schedule is created by matching your preferences with the preferences of employers.  You will not need to contact the employers independently.

Your Intent to Attend Form, résumé, and references are due Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022 11:59 PM Eastern Time (résumés and references should be emailed to the UMD Preview Committee as a PDF with the subject title as follows: LastName_Resume).  Cover letters are not necessary.  Your Assistantship Preference Form is due Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022 11:59 PM Eastern Time.  Please review the assistantship positions listed so that you can rank your preferences.  New positions will be posted regularly.  The deadline to submit assistantship preferences is February 2nd. However, students may submit this form prior to the deadline if they like.  Your Preview interview schedule will be finalized and emailed to you no later than Thursday, February 17th, 2022.

  • You may be asked to provide employers with professional references at the time of your interview.

  • Please remember to send each employer a thank you email or note following your interview.

  • Please check out the Terp Guide published by the University Career Center for information about updating your résumé and preparing for interviews.  In addition, sample résumés from past and present HESI students can be found here.

  • Do your best to ensure that you are located in a quiet space for your virtual interview.

  • Test run your camera and microphone prior to your interview. 

  • Should you have any technological issues, please reach out to your interview sites as soon as possible and send an email to hesi.assistantships@gmail.com.

  • Think about what kind of "receipts" you can bring.  For example, previous students have participated in interviews for assistantships that emphasized skills in graphic design. Knowing this, potential candidates brought examples of their previous projects and employers enjoyed having an additional piece of information to remember them by.
