    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is traditional in so far as a search committee screens and interviews candidates. Their recommendation is put forward to the Dean. My experience was that the process was fair and gave me an opportunity to meet faculty, students, administrators and board members.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Realize that not being offered this position was not a bad thing, and I was on the verge of withdrawing when I received the call. Of course, we all say this, right?
    Initial interview was a phone interview with 5 participants who asked a total of 5 questions, one being: what is your personal mission statement, and none of the common or typical fare.
    On-site interview began with a rushed dinner at a ho-hum restaurant, allowing the 'boss' to talk about himself and his accomplishments. The full-day interview consisted of disinterested parties and late-starting meetings (panel interview with office staff, small group meeting with interested group, planned meeting with executives where no one showed-insightful, nice lunch, interview with peers in same division, presentation where 15 of 18 attending showed 30 minutes late, final interview with boss).
    Communication was spotty, and I never knew who was actually doing the hiring. Initial salary range was 40% below market, which was reconsidered and was established within an acceptable range. Reimbursement was offered, but when given was 'short'.
