    Positive Outlook

    I worked at City Colleges of Chicago (More than 3 years)


    Impact lives of many students who come from a wide array of backgrounds. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting to work in academia at the ground level and really play a part in education


    Any big administration in the government will have its set backs and issues it's employees will take issue with. It's just part of the structure of government. You would have to be okay working in government at a government pace. I can't say this is ALWAYS a bad thing as often plans are announced well in advance. Sometimes the delay in implementation can be frustrating if your job would be improved by whatever the issue is.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people who work directly with the student body when they have things to say! They really mean this!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at City Colleges of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.


    Initial interview & teaching demo were with three members of the faculty search committee. Called back for a second, less formal interview with the college president seven weeks later. Three days after that, I had a third interview with the Vice President of Academic & Student Services, the Dean of Instruction, and the Dean overseeing the program.

    An informal offer was made by telephone. I made a counter-offer. The following week, the college called and made me an offer which I accepted, pending final approval of the CCC Board of Trustees.
