    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Pacific Lutheran University.

    Interview Details

    I was hired for a Visiting Assistant Professor position after interviewing with eight other applicants. After submitting my application and references, I was asked to do a Skype interview with the department faculty. Following this, I was asked to come out for a two day in-person interview during which I met with additional PLU faculty and administration. I was notified at the end of the second day that they wanted to informally offer me the position. A formal offer arrived later the next week.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me my opinion on several highly-debated questions specific to my field that were difficult for me to answer in-the-moment.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated on an extra stipend for moving costs, but my request for a (small) increase in my base pay was denied.
