    Interview

    It was simple and quick. The phone interview was short and sweet. The in person interview was about an hour long and it went really smooth. I was given an offer the next day.

    Interview

    Phone and in-person interview. In person interview was normal as was the telephone interview. Only part I did not expect was a writing assignment I was to complete while the others waited. Did not get much feedback on it or my interview. I would apply and interview here again, everyone was friendly and professional.

    Instructor English Department Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kirkwood Community College (Cedar Rapids, IA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The country has far more people with English MAs and PhDs than it does fulltime teaching position, so the competition is intense. I applied three years running for FT while teaching PT. Three step process begins with being invited to submit a teaching portfolio--philosophy, lesson plans, video of me in classroom (OR you can do it live for committee members), published work (although KCC is really teaching-centered.)
        Second round is a phone interview, which was a little weird since I see most of the committee members 3 days per week. However, they were trying to create an even playing field for the external candidates. (One ESL insructor was did his face-to-face interview via Skype from a hotel room in Lima, since he was teaching in a little Peruvian town.) I never made it to the face-to-face myself.

    Interview Questions

    • KCC wants to know about your racial attitudes, because we have so many minority students (both ESL and recently inner-city African Americans from Chicago, St. Louis, etc.) I can't remember the wording, but the jist of it was--"how do we know you are working on your racial hangups?"   1 Answer
