    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bowdoin College (Brunswick, ME) in Sep 2022


    First round- phone screen with more information about the position Second round- interview panel with questions emailed ahead of time. 3 person panel. No room for interviewee to ask questions. Not a conversation- the panel barely said hello and went straight through the questions. Panel offered zero verbal feedback or follow up questions to interviewee's answers, which felt jarring. I'm not usually a nervous interviewer, but this felt more like an academic defense than an interview.
