    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boise State University in April 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online then shortly after the job posting closed I received a call to schedule a panel phone interview. Our connection during the call must have been bad due to my area or the system used. I say this because it was very difficult to hear any of the questions from the individuals speaking.

    The questions asked were very straightforward and appropriate, the department head on the phone spoke very clearly and respectfully. However, it did feel as if I was being rushed off the line due to my difficulty hearing the questions. My 15-minute interview only ended up being roughly 10 minutes.

    My advice to future individuals interviewing is to make sure you have a good headset or landline for these phone panel interviews. It can be very difficult to hear at times due to the speakerphone used on the other side. Also, I suggest writing out some prepared responses to common questions asked to ensure that you are not caught off guard and can decipher the question that was asked.

    My advice to the hiring team in the future is to introduce the panel members then let the individual closest to the speaker ask all the questions. This will make it easier for applicants who are hard of hearing to understand the questions asked.
