    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Governors State University in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    My interview seemed easy because I had met most of the team at a conference a few months earlier. There were 3 senior faculty in the room with a list of standard questions. I was surprised that I did not have to do a teaching demonstration, but occasionally this is required now.

    Interview Questions
    • None of them were hard. Mostly they discussed my prior teaching experience and teaching interests because I had not taught before. I was hired ABD which is a big trend in our division.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Difficult because I was new. I looked up the range, and asked for a few thousand higher than the top range.
