Two days ago, I had my RM interview with Trenton Barry, Johnson Hall Director. I think it went well, and I am thinking that I may actually have a chance. I figured it would be a beneficial exercise to talk about my reasons for wanting this position.
To begin, I love Johnson, and having to leave it is going to be difficult. I have been inside every single residence hall on campus, and Johnson is really the only one that truly feels like home, although I really like Riggs too. However, that isn’t even the main reason or the most important reason.
I want to take on a leadership position, because I want to be able to exercise one. I want to be a high school teacher after college, so this would be very beneficial to me. I would definitely learn a lot from the experience, especially as an RM since I’d technically be a TA with the GST course.
I would also like to serve as a positive role model toward people, and I like feeling as if I can help people. I would hope that people would trust me and come to me with a problem in the event that they needed help that they felt I could provide. Again, it’s beneficial to someone like me due to my chosen career field.
I am supposed to find out on April 6th whether or not I got the job, so wish me luck!
