University of Oregon

  • Got an email about being on the "long short list" 11/24
  • 11/24: was this in response to an email you sent them? Or one that they sent to candidates more generally? Thanks.
  • Neither. They asked for more materials (some were missing from my app I guess) and said I was on the long short list. I hadn't emailed them and it was not a general email sent to candidates.
  • Contacted via e-mail for an interview via video conferencing next week. Was told to find a video conferencing facility in the yellow pages. (12/3)
  • That's an odd request. Are they paying for it or are you expected to cover that expense? If this is in lieu of a phone interview, it seems like a somewhat sneaky way for them to visually assess the race/ethnicity of the candidates, and if it's in lieu of the on campus interview, it's a rather interesting way for them to reduce costs in this crap economy. Keep us updated on the video conference thing.
  • I did not apply for this job, but I have heard from individuals formerly assoc. with Oregon that they have done video conferencing for several years. it is in lieu of conference interviews, rather than in lieu of phone interviews (I'd rather do a video conference interview because I appreciate seeing people's expressions when i'm responding and find it easier to make it into a conversation).
  • Had the video interview and it was much better than a phone interview. They paid all costs. They hope to call candidates to schedule January on campus interviews by Christmas.

University of Redlands

  • Any word on this job?
  • I haven't heard a thing (12/4)
  • I received a snail mail ack of application, though they said I was missing materials that I'm fairly certain they have. Also came with HR diversity form.
