Dear Helen
Thank you for the very informative post. As a North American, the British market always looked a bit strange to me (but I am smart enough to know that the N.A. market looks strange to outsiders as well). You have done a great service, laying out the basic structure of the British interview, etc. Further, you remind us that even the language and concepts used to talk about the UK job market are significantly different from those used in NA.


Why do you say that longer writing samples are better because of the REF? A 4 page paper in Analysis is just as REFable as a 38 paper in Ethics.

Helen De Cruz

Neil: I've got this on the testimony from a full professor in the UK, who told me that, all things being equal, a longer piece in a journal of similar standing is more REFable than a 4-page piece in Analysis.


Thank you, Helen, for a very informative post. I am curious to know whether there is a distinction between the British and European job interview and the Australasian (to include a jobs in the Pacific Rim). If you or any reader has any knowledge of that system, I'd be grateful if they shared their experience.
