Very Easy Interview
Assistant Lecturer Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Monash University in January 2008.
Interview Details – It was an informal discussion with the person who looked after all of the tutors at Monash. She was interested to learn why I wanted to be a tutor, what experience I had and those sorts of issues. Technical ability did not come into nor did understanding of economics. She was not even interested in one's ability to control a class room full of rowdy students.
Interview Question – Who was your favourite tutor and why? View Answer
