Eventually, paperwork gives way to people work, and the academic job search turns to interviews and campus visits. What can you do to avoid common pitfalls and put your best foot forward? This workshop focuses on the interviewing phase of the academic job search. You will learn about different types of interviews, multiple rounds of interviews, on-site visits, employer/applicant expectations, how to prepare for interviews (including what to bring with you), ideas about how to dress, and even social interaction suggestions. The session serves as a springboard for the next session, the mock interview. We recommend those interested in working outside of academia contact the Baylor University Career Center for relevant resources.
