Why should we hire you? That might have been the most difficutl question.

Not sure. It's been two years so I can't truly remember the questions tossed at me. Basically, just study the normal questions that are asked in the average interview.

Nothing. I was pretty young, fresh out of college, they knew I had practically zero experience. I think they were desperate.

They wanted me to do a role play but the person playing the student was just bizarre! I've taught for 7+ years and am a licensed counselor. If someone acted this way in real life, I would assess for severe cognitive impairment and refer to disability resources office! They must have wanted a certain, specific phrase or response. But, with years of teaching and counseling, it was still a mystery to me. They praised me highly and went on and on in person and via email... then abruptly hired someone else. Was basically a waste of time. In my experience, PCC already knows who they want to hire. They only post a position and interview other candidates because they have to by law. In reality, it's just to check off that they did it. So, if your dept chair didn't invite you to interview, you're probably wasting your time!
