- Phone Interview Scheduled 11/27
- Phone interview early December. Said committee was meeting 12/9 and candidates would hear something that week. It's now 12/19. Assuming no news is bad news since holidays are approaching, and they'd likely want to schedule campus interviews before the break. Thoughts?
- I had a phone interview and was told the same thing but also haven't heard anything.
- Same here.
- Our shared experience should give us hope! My guess is that end of the semester logistics forced them to hold off on decision-making until after the new year. Or perhaps they had the dreaded "budgetary concerns" meeting with Academic Affairs. I doubt it's the latter, because they're filling a retirement vacancy. My advice, for what it's worth: just hang tight. Hopefully we're not all candidates on the outside looking in, as happy candidates celebrate their Murfeesboro interviews. If that's the case, then my musings are worthless...

- Wingate does not have a tenure system.
- This alum was under the impression that they do have a tenure system, hence the term "continuing" here.

- Any updates?
- Still no updates?
