    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at City Colleges of Chicago.

    Interview

    3 one-hour visits with faculty, panel of administrators, then the president. No teaching demonstration. The process was not bad at all except for the fact that it was all broken up into three sessions. Also, it took a very long time to get the offer followed by another long delay to get the actual salary figure.
