Tenure Track Assistant Professor Interview

Tenure Track Assistant Professor
Santa Clara, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Santa Clara University in April 2012.

Interview Details – 3 days of meeting with faculty, presented a mock lecture and a research powerpoint. Faculty were friendly, but not very concerned with the process, as if there were another preferred candidate. I thought the interview was fair, but a waste of everyone's time. the only exception to this feeling is that I learned valuable interview skills.

Interview Question – How would you balance teaching and research?   View Answer

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Santa Clara, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Santa Clara University in February 2011.

Interview Details – Phone interview with person who would be direct supervisor, and then set up personal interview. I first met with HR representative, who told me all about all the benefits, days off, etc. This struck me as a bit premature and a waste of time, because if I didn't get offered the job, why dangle all the bennies in front of me? Because they pay below market, and that's how they try to lure you in, that's why. It was followed up by a panel interview, with one person after another firing off questions.

Interview Question – How judgmental a person do you feel you are?   Answer Question
