How to Get a Job at Reed

We recognize that different learning styles, communication preferences, and strengths can make interviewing stressful. We strive to see our candidates in different evaluative processes to make our picture of you as a candidate more complete. To help achieve this goal, we ask candidates who move past the phone screen to participate in two different interview activities. Both activities are samples of work Area Coordinators do on a regular basis, so it not only helps us see how you would fit into our department, but helps you see the type of work you would be doing at Reed.
