    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Illinois University.

    Interview

    Met with a current faculty member and discussed the needs of the department and my needs as a potential student. Overall the process was streamline and easy to understand. The people there are pleasant and willing to assist any way they can. The department chairs are also required to submit a reason why they did or did not hire you- so no waiting for an answer that may or may not come.
