Academic interviews

Though I don't focus on it much here, working in the academic world can be a legitimate pastoral calling, too-- I know that several of my former professors ministered to me in profound ways.

There was a great article recently on the ProfHacker blog on "hacking" an interview for an academic position. The highlights are:
  • Get your facts straight
  • Keep your answers short and foster conversation
  • Think about what you will be asked
  • Prepare a few questions
  • Wave your geek flag-- but do so cautiously
  • Have fun
  • ...other advice.
Read the whole article here-- very good stuff.
