    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SUNY at New Paltz.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process required that I submit my resume online and after 2 weeks I received an email asking to come in for an interview. My interview was taken by 3 different people at the same time, in the same room. I was first asked about myself: goals and ambitions, then they talked about their department and how they fit into the university. I was asked about my skills, strengths and weaknesses. The interview was rigorous but not very hard. Once you open up and make it a very conversation based interaction, the questions and answers just flow.

    Teaching Position Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at SUNY at New Paltz in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    It took the department a really long time between initial contact and on-campus interview. So long, in fact, that I had assumed they were no longer interested. The administrative part of the interview was a breeze; chitchat with the dean, a few typical questions by the provost (although they've just hired a new one so it may be different for you.) Teaching demonstration. The students seemed generally respectful; a small handful had questions and interacted in the discussion, and there were some students that barely had their eyes open. There was a little bit of digital device activity going on as well. The rest of the interview was the usual questions... no shockers. As for the atmosphere of the department, I found it a little shockingly conservative. I am also sure they would not use that term to define themselves. It also took them a long time to send out the rejection letter. I was relieved. (P.S. I am picking "easy" instead of "very easy" for the interview difficulty because there is always some difficulty and artificiality in coming up with a teaching demo.)
