    Professor of Psychology Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Dublin City University (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Panel of six, one external asked scholarly (but not well informed) questions, the other seemed to think she was the 'bad cop' in a 'good cop bad cop' scenario. Actually she didn't know really what she was talking about, but that didn't stop her being unpleasant in a manic fashion. Otherwise questions seemed a bit oblique and I'm not sure they didn't have a candidate already in mind. Bit surprised I was asked to go at all given this institution (the 'entrepreneurial' university of Ireland) had employed my business partner on a temporary contract and had made some arrangement with him to become independent of the partnership and carry out the business wit them in their facility. All bad form isn't it?

    Interview Questions

    • I can't remember specifics. I mentioned opening an international masters degree and this was actually scoffed at, even though the interviewer concerned has no actual experience of this themselves.   Answer Question
