• One of the most frustrating aspects of a higher education job search is timing. One institution may have completed the entire process before another even advertises an opening. Be patient, recognize that conducting a job search is difficult, and negotiate the process as best you can.
  • Remember that the interview and search process is a two-way undertaking. You should be interviewing the institution and the department as much as they are interviewing you. Make sure the institution meets your expectations and matches your skills and interests; you do not want to end up somewhere where you will be unhappy.
