    I worked at Humboldt State University part-time

    Pros

    Worked with wonderful people. Meeting and instructing the diverse student population was the greatest part of the job. HSU offers excellent dental, health, and vision insurance, even to part-timers. Easy community to work with.

    Cons

    Instruction can be a difficult, no matter where you teach - lots of at-home work; expectations to return e-mails and phone messages promptly. Humboldt County is a beautiful part of the world, but has limited shopping and medical care. Serious health issues require a 4-6 hour drive to Santa Rosa or San Francisco.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Humboldt State University (Arcata, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Three rounds of interviews. All by committee. This is a fairly typical process within academia. The process is designed to align the right individuals with the job. Unfortunately, time is the enemy in this process. If you are in urgent need of a job do not apply for government.
