    Instructor, College Or University Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at College of DuPage (Glen Ellyn, IL).

    Interview

    Once the hiring committee is interested in a candidate, the next step is a Skype, or in-person interview with the hiring committee. If the committee is still interested in the candidate, the next step is an in-class teaching demonstration. The outcome of these steps determines next steps.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    The hiring process involved a video chat interview followed by a teaching demo. The video chat was about 20 minutes long. The hiring committee was in a conference room and it was distracting because they did not cover the door, so you could see people walking by the glass door constantly throughout the interview. They took turns asking questions and the associate dean did not participate beyond taking notes throughout the interview. I was not invited for a second interview, although they told me that second interviews would involve a day long campus visit with a teaching demonstration for one of the full time faculty members' classrooms. I applied in the fall, I was called in March to schedule an interview on two days notice, and was not notified until May 19th that the search had been closed. The entire process seemed to be unorganized and lacked consideration of the applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you view the role of Community Colleges in Higher Ed? How do you promote diversity in the classroom? What motivates you? How do you define humanities?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    Asked about the role of the teacher in a community college and how it differed from teaching in a university. A teaching demonstration was required and then several questions were asked about the demonstration. After interviewing with faculty, several interviews happened with administration. Curriculum and committee opportunities were discussed. There were many questions about previous teaching experiences and how they related to the current job opening.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    Because I was referred through from a friend working at the College at the time, I did not have an interview at all. I was hired based on my credentials. Once hired I was reviewed the same semester, Summer 2013 and was given feedback. Since then I have been teaching every semester.

    Interview Questions

    • Discussed credentials and timings available to teach via email with the dean. She was amazingly nice and understanding of my job commitment and allowed me to start classes once I was more open.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    No interview was made due to knowing a professor who needs assistance to supervise an engineering seminar on a weekend. Due to my collaboration with my future supervisor, I later did work on the side during the weekends prior to the year ending and being hired on the spot as a student worker.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at College of DuPage.

    Interview

    COD uses a long web form for initial applications for all jobs- tedious to fill out but while you're at it you can apply to several positions that interest you at once. Got a call a week or so later to interview, interview was about 45 minutes and pretty relaxed. This definitely depends what you are applying for though, as the College obviously has many different departments.
