In response to our most recent, 'How can we help you?' post, an anonymous job-candidate writes:
It would be really helpful to get some advice on interviewing at the APA Eastern for those of us who are being interviewed there for the first time very soon! What should job candidates bring? I am not sure what to show up with. Should I bring a folder with my complete dossier (CV, writing sample, research statement, teaching statement and evaluations, sample syllabi, diversity statement, etc.)? How many copies should one have on hand? How does this interview differ from Skype interviews? I have now had some practice with first-round Skype/teleconference interviews, but I'm very nervous about the APA.
Good questions! What do you all think? Helen and I co-wrote a post last year on APA interviews as part of our Job-Market Boot Camp--and I hope readers found it helpful. Aside from what I wrote there, here are a few of my thoughts.
