    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (Indiana, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    When applying for a GA outside of your department you may be interviewed by the professor seeking a GA. The process for a GA interview in my experience was a phone interview asking about my research skills and courses completed. They wanted to know if I was a good fit to help conduct research and editing for their department.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (Indiana, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went to IUP for a campus interview for an assistant professor position in my field. The backwater town and low-intensity of the school reflects in the faculty and students alike. For example, the questions faculty asked at my job talk didn't reflect more than an undergraduate understanding of our field and I had several meetings scheduled that faculty just didn't show up for. The meetings I did have left a bad impression - for instance one program director had drooping eyes and was struggling to keep her head up - seemed like she was on pain medication. When we went out for dinner after my talk I was given the check to pay for my own glass of wine! What's more, I was asked to purchase my own airfare and assured a reimbursement ... I'm still waiting for that check two and half months later. If you have serious career ambitions and ANY other option, I'd steer clear of this school.

    Professor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (Indiana, PA).

    Interview

    Usually a several interview process. Be sure to be up on your field in practical and theoretical areas. If you have a faculty contact at the university, see what you can find out about the gap the department is trying to fill. This will give you an idea of your chances for success. For example, if you are qualified in qualitative research and they are seeking a quantitative person, you are unlikely to be selected.
    Be prepared to answer: What would you like to teach at IUP? There is lots of information on the website related to the courses offered.

    Interview Questions

    • Not unexpected, but surprising how many applicants stumble on this: What are your research interests?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Do negotiate--it cannot hurt. Your experience often "counts" and the worse they can say is "no." Ask about your office computer or other technology for your exclusive use or available to your department.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (Indiana, PA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I heard from a friend that the Writing Center would be needing new workers for the next semester. The application was online, so I printed one, filled it out, attached a writing sample, and gave it to the front desk worker. A few days later, I got an e-mail to come in for an interview. The interview took place in the chairperson's office with him and the assistant chair. I answered a few questions about myself and why I wanted to work there. I was asked if I knew what the job entailed. I was asked about my writing. After about 10 minutes, we shook hands and I left. The next day, I received an e-mail that I had been hired and told the first day in which I was to show up.
