    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SUNY at New Paltz.

    Interview

    Long. 3 step process over 3 weeks. Met with different RDs for each interview. Questions really required you to think about why you want to be an RA and what motivates you to apply for the position. Getting a free room simply is not enough. You really must want it, which is what was articulated in the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at SUNY at New Paltz (New Paltz, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process took about 5 months. Phone interview, followed by an in-person interview on campus. I rated the interview process as average in difficult simply because an all day interview on campus presenting research and lecturing is very tiring.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard for an academic job. Met with the dean, did a research presentation and a teaching demonstration. Committee questions mostly centered around my university teaching experience. Found out about a month after the campus interview that the University did not have the budget secured to hire another professor.   Answer Question
