- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Community College of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2013.
At first, the interview process was professional. I was given thorough details for the interview and waited two weeks for a reply. Then, I interviewed for the position. The process was underdeveloped, in regards to organization and execution. The climate was intimate but aloof for an academic environment.
- There weren't any difficult questions, that is what worried me. However, there was one unexpected question in regards to external obligations and previous experiences. 1 Answer
I did not need to negotiate anything. All salary requirements and program coordination was previously arranged, or so I thought.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Community College of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2011.
For the first hour I was read a series of about 12 standardized questions related to the position, my background as a librarian, and the college community. After that I taught a mock 20 minute class in a computer classroom to the same panel. Bear in mind that about half the panel were other faculty that I either already worked with or had met. My main impression of the process was that it was not very transparent, that little flexibility was given to the search committee on how to elucidate the candidates. When I tried to "go deep" on a few of my answers I got the sense of some of the panel members shutting down. I felt that they had already made a decision not only about me but about the position itself.
