Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:46 PM
the eternal struggle
Francis 4:15:06 PM
Best job interviews always seem to involve just talking about non-job related stuff. Always get offered those positions. I guess at that point it's just a personality interview to see if you'll fit.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:16:28 PM
Yeah, this was a 1st round zoom interview for an assistant professorship so I answered pretty standard questions about my research and teaching, the personality element will come into play if i make it to campus, then "fit" is really important
Matty, Donor to the Stars 4:16:39 PM
