    Lecturer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  New York, NY

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Hunter College in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The department explained nothing about to your questions. Whatever you asked they would tell you to make your own decision. They may never go back to you because they already had an ideal candidate from their students. All hiring posts and application process are just a required procedure. Don't be surprised that they never reply your email and you may never receive an even decline email.

    The process to set up an interview was very pleasant. The administrative assistant was amiable and helpful. The instructions were clear. The appointment began on time and all members of the search committee were attentive.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked standard questions regarding my interest in the position, what I knew about the university, and my background in the field.
