    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at San Diego State University.

    There is an application that requires you to submit two letters of recommendation before you will have the chance at an interview. As far as I know the interview process is being overhauled. They will ask you about your experience with the topics that you may teach and what (if any) experience you have teaching.
