BARNES CLUB CONFERENCE
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2004
Mock interviews will be organized to help potential job candidates hone their interviewing skills. Interviewing well is a difficult challenge. At the Barnes Club Conference’s mock interview sessions, objective and distanced professionals from other institutions could offer potential candidates valuable tips on interviewing style and protocol. Such interviewer-interviewee interactions in hypothetical situations would also go a long way to alleviate anxieties.
Interested graduate students may attend the Barnes Club Conference and participant as a job candidate in a simulated job interview. The fictional job is a tenure track position in U.S., European, or World history with a three-three teaching load at a medium state institution. Alternatively, a graduate student may interview for a fictional public history job. Two-person teams of faculty from Temple University and other area universities will serve at interviewers on the fictitious hiring committee.
