A guide to navigating tenure-track interviews in today’s market: Editorial  


“For decades, the interview process for tenure-track positions was relatively fixed in both timing and format,” write Jennifer S Furlong (City University of New York) and Stacy M Hartman (CUNY). “For today’s faculty job candidates, however, that system has been disrupted.” Furlong and Hartman discuss how the hiring process for tenure-track positions has changed over recent years and offer guidance on what to expect in today’s market. They touch on what to expect and how to prepare for each round of interviews. They conclude by answering common questions interviewees may have, such as when to ask about compensation, how long to expect to wait for a decision, and whether to send thank-you notes to the committee.
