    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Occidental College (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by an in-person interview with two individuals in the department. Answered a set of 6 or so questions. The questions were straight forward, standard interview questions. It was not an intimidating experience, very comfortable environment.
