Academic Job Interviews

Every interview you get is an indication that the hiring committee is impressed by your application materials, and thinks you might be a good fit for their needs. The purpose of an interview, then, is for the institution to find out whether you would be a good fit for them, and for you to find out whether the position is a good fit for you (Gibson, 1992, p. 44). Here are some resources that will help you to prepare for, and get the most out of, your interviews.
