Interview: Home Run!

That’s how it was described to me by my head of department, anyhow.  So I’m now a semi-finalist.  As I understand it, the odds have gone from 15-3 (of which I’m only eligible for 2), to 5-3(2).  Which means I need to interview well enough to edge out three other applicants (since the remaining third will go into a position for which I’m not applying, the FT-temp slot).

So, I’m not hired yet, but it’s looking pretty good so far.  Head of Department says to just keep doing what I’m doing, so that’s what I’m going to do.  Yay inertia?

    Sweet man…

  5. It seems like the position(s) for which I’m interviewing is a position that would be doing a lot of dual-credit… wheee, weird commute, lots of high-school students…

    Uh, is that good or bad?

  7. It’s not my preferred, but it’s still not bad. Means dealing with HS kids and some additional paperwork, etc…

    What exactly are you applying for?

    A full-time position, rather than adjuncting. You knew I taught in three counties, right? I’m applying to get more involved in a single county, rather than being a more-or-less freelance instructor.

    I know the downsides of freelance work all too well. Well it’s good that your getting the opportunities to really root yourself in. I’m sure you get a lot of job security benefits like that.
