Adjunct Faculty Member Interview

Adjunct Faculty Member

I applied online and interviewed at Southern New Hampshire University.

Interview Details – Filled out application online, got email response setting up phone interview, interviewer was impressed with prior experience and experience with LMS platforms. Sent in application for courses to teach, heard nothing back for over a month. When I inquired to the interviewer about my status, was told they were researching the issue, then got a generic HR email rejecting my application. Very unprofessional and not a way someone with over 10+ years in higher education online would expect to be treated by a University that touts itself so much on TV.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, all very easy to answer.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Southern New Hampshire University in July 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online from SNHU website. Received preliminary call back a week later, then in person interview. Interview held with team of three (team lead and two others). Positive, comfortable atmosphere. Multiple interviews were being held at the same time. Very quick, easy interview, nothing out of the ordinary question wise. Was given the feeling they knew exactly the type of candidate they were looking for without much flexibility.
