I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Adea (Washington, DC) in January 2009.
Typical trade association office in downtown DC -- The American Dental Education Association. About 40 staff members. Initial communications made through email. Had initial interview in their office with Director of the adovacy program. Also had "interview" with 3 potential colleagues. Was clear that the colleagues were not collegial and that the Director spent time herding cats. Atmosphere in general was not very collegial, although everyone was nice and professional toward me. The interview experience was fine; however, despite my very clearly setting salary expectations from the initial cover letter and again in person, the informal "offer" was not close. Ultimately I felt like we both expended significant time and effort for little return.
