    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Lamar University in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited by a tenured professor to move to Lamar from another state university. It was late in the summer and it really put my university n a bind to replace me so quickly. However, I went, and the interview at Lamar was positive and pleasant. Everyone was friendly and positive and the questions mainly centered on my background and experience as a practitioner. They believed that one needed experience in the area they were teaching. I was a match!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lamar University in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    Because of my past experience with the professors and staff at Lamar, I was contacted by a close friend who knew of an opening in their department. (Networking is key!) I met with the Department Chair regarding the possibility of teaching part-time, and asked questions about expectations for an Adjunct Professor. Everyone was warm and friendly, and after completing the new hire paperwork and a day-long orientation process, I began teaching during the subsequent full term. The university did lose my new hire paperwork and I had to complete it a second time; however, that did not prevent me from starting my work on time.

    Interview Questions
    • n/a - All questions were typical and related to my work experience both teaching and in other industries. The most challenging questions was whether I was interested in teaching a class centered around material I had not used in a while.   Answer Question

    Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Lamar University in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    When you are searching and applying for jobs, you sometimes begin to feel that the job interview process is designed to make things hard for you to get the job you want. All the applications, all the interviews, all the questions and references… it can start to make you frustrated. You might even start wondering why the company can’t just hire you or reject you and be done with it sooner. Seen from the company’s point of view, however, the hiring process makes more sense. For a company, each hire is both an gamble and an investment. These workers will have access to the most valuable aspects of the company; the information, other employees, the customers, the physical premises. What’s more, each employee costs considerable amounts of money to train, to manage, to supervise and to turn into a productive worker.

    The job interview process is designed to reduce the risk of the hire, and to pick the employees that will require the least amount of investment to bring up to productive level. The procedures and questions that the company puts candidates through should help them identify the employees who can be entrusted with the future of the company as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Judged from this angle, even the bureaucracy and paperwork of the hire makes sense. These elements are a part of every job. Candidates who lose patience and refuse to complete the required steps in the job application process are likely to show that same sort of impatience and lack of persistence later on the job as well.
