    It was pretty fair. The process was very exciting and I was excited about getting a new job in the big city. When they called me back I was very excited. Part of the reason I was so excited was that they were a premiere university in a very vibrant city. It will be fun to work there and the students are very cool.

It was just a face to face interview. No phone interview. I met with a panel of 3 (Director, Assistant Director, and the Program Coordinator). The questions were standard, tell me about yourself? Why are you interested in this position? What can you bring to this position? The entire process from applying online until hiring took about 3 months.
