    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Iowa Western Community College.

    Interview Details

    My interview was a long time ago, but I only met with the Program Chair and the Dean at the time. It was a cordial interview. Since my hiring, I've served on three or four search committees, for both faculty and deans. One was a search committee for a Dean, and it was a large committee comprising of faculty from the division as well as the other Deans from the college, and the VP for Academic Affairs. Another committee was for a program chair (not in my program, but a program that worked closely with us), and it was a committee comprised of faculty from a couple of programs, the Arts Center Director, and a couple of Deans. Another was a committee to find a new faculty member for our program, in which I participated along with the Program Chair and the Dean. It all varies now by program and division, but an addition now is that prospective faculty have to meet with the HR Director, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, and the College President after the choice has been made and the offer finalized, which was not the case when I was first hired.

    Negotiation Details
    The former HR director was a stingy person. They tried to lowball the offer, and when I tried to bring it up, they said the limit was something half way between their lowball offer and my asking salary. I had to take a small pay cut to take this position.
