    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of St. Thomas · Minnesota.

    Interview

    One month between date of application and offer. Three interviews total including phone screening within 1 week of one another. Each interview included a panel of people. My references were contacted pretty almost immediately after interview, so prepare them as soon as you apply. The reference check was more than a formality. They spoke to the three of them about my strengths and weaknesses, suitability for the specific position, likelihood of retention, and reasons for moving on from former jobs. Mission is a big part of the interview process, so consider how your job connects with the bigger picture.

    Instructor, College Or University Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of St. Thomas · Minnesota (Saint Paul, MN).

    Interview

    1. Online application with the usual teaching philosophy, CV, as well as specific questions.

    2. Phone interview where I responded to a series of questions that were provided to me a couple of days before the interview. The interviewers did not respond to my answers or ask follow up questions which threw me off a bit. This was meant to provide a consistent interview process.

    3. Two-day interview and campus visit. Four days before my interview I was given a detailed description of issues that each of my two talks needed to address. I was also given several papers on education and the Catholic Intellectual tradition that I would then be asked about.

    I gave a teaching lecture of my choice and a talk on promoting academic excellence. Talks were followed by about 40 minutes of questions. There were also five one-one-one interviews that were fairly informal.

    Everyone that I met during my two days at Saint Thomas was friendly, welcoming, and answered my questions about the University and the job. Committee members were prepared and had specific questions that demonstrated that they read my application.

    Interview Questions

    • Pat answers will not cut it. Be prepared to provide thoughtful answers and to demonstrate that you understand the Catholic intellectual tradition. I was asked many questions about my teaching philosophy and my experience and ability to teach a multicultural student body. I never felt like there were any religious test or that I would be expected to promote any ideology.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of St. Thomas · Minnesota (Saint Paul, MN) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Easy and brief, very informal. They have a decently high turnover rate of employees since students graduate or get other jobs. The people that work care, so they aren't trying to stump or trick you on any questions - they just really do want to know more about you and why you believe you should be an employee. The overall process was super quick and easy, as well as having a fast turn around time.
