    The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Ivy Tech Community College.

    Interview Details

    The interview was relaxed. There was a panel of four managers asking questions regarding the position and how my experience related. They let me know what to expect after the interview. Three weeks after the first interview, I was invited to interview with the Chancellor. He made the offer during the second interview.

    Faculty Fellow Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Ivy Tech Community College.

    Interview Details

    I emailed the department chair about a year before out of interest in such a position and we kept in contact when the Faculty Fellow position opened up. Then I applied online and received a phone call invitation to interview about 2-3 months later (we exchanged emails several times during this time as well). I was given instructions to prepare a 30-minute teaching lesson over a specific topic in my field (they told me exactly what topic to teach).

    The atmosphere of the interview was more laid back than expected. 4 people interviewed me, taking turns asking specific questions they had printed in front of them. All were very nice and interactive during this time. Mostly expected questions: what qualifies you? How does Ivy Tech fit into your goals? Share 3 strengths? What are your personal interests? Give an example of a difficult time teaching, how did you resolve an issue/ change? Have you taught older students before? Are you involved in the community?
    I did draw many of my answers from my philosophy of teaching statement and other past teaching experience. Additional information: I brought in student evaluation comments from past teaching experiences & I brought an example of a teaching technique I like to use in the classroom. They seemed excited to have this additional information.

    Then I gave my 30-minute teaching lesson and that was the end.

    Interview Questions
    • What is the difference between the role of a community college and a 4-year institution?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The Dean explained that they have a formula for calculating salaries based on degree, years of experience teaching etc. He said I might ask for $500 more than the initial offer but not much more.
