Today I got an invitation for a skype-type interview with a super amazing school inn a completely different field from my degree or my current affiliation. I am in shock - and am so nervous. They wanted to do the interview either while I was still in New Orleans or early the morning after I get back (and I am getting back after midnight). Luckily they were able to push it back a couple days so it gives me time to prepare. There’s a colleague who is here at this conference who used to work there - so I am hoping we can connect so I can pick her brain about the department/university. I hope this is a good sign - that if they liked my cover letter and CV, that that means others will as well and that I will get more interviews. I have applied to 8 places, and will apply to more once I get back from New Orleans. If any of you academics can tell me anything about skype-type faculty interviews, I would be grateful!!!
Take a look at some art in New Orleans, and tell me what is up with you!
