Academic Interviews

An academic interview is an opportunity to highlight your scholarship, research prowess, and cultural "fit' with potential colleagues at other institutions. Preparation can make the difference between a successful interview and an unsuccessful interview. In short, know your value-add to the department and college in terms of your research, your teaching, and your ability to bring in grants and fellowships.
