    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Hawai'i (Lihue, HI) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Skype interview with screening committee- entire interview lasted about an hour. I was asked 12 questions that were very general and had little to do with the specifics of the job I was applying for (and got). Got the feeling that the search committee knew very little about the subject I was applying for.

    Knowing someone who already works for the University really greases the gears. I assume they checked my resume but the interview was mostly a description of the courses I was going to be teaching.
