How do I sign up to participate in the Annual Meeting Interview Service?
Registration for the Interview Service opens on June 1 on eJobs. Hiring institutions and departments can reserve space at the interview service up until the Annual Meeting, space permitting, by checking the boxes for the days they will be participating when they submit their job posting.
Does APSA provide assistance in contacting candidates to arrange interviews?
Employers reach out directly to candidates to set up interviews. Starting June 1, candidates may indicate in their eJobs profiles the days they are available for interviews during the Annual Meeting. Employers may consult this information before reaching out to candidates to schedule interviews. Alternatively, job candidates may contact hiring committees directly, expressing their interest in an interview. Employers should include committee contact information in their job listing if they prefer candidates to initiate contact.
How do I indicate when the hiring committee will be interviewing? Can interviews take place over multiple days?
Employers may indicate their availability for interviews directly on the eJobs posting. This will let job candidates know when you will be interviewing. Interviews may take place Thursday through Saturday of the Annual Meeting, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm on Thursday and 8:00 am – 6:00 pm on Friday and Saturday. The hiring committee may reserve an interview table for half-days, a single day, or multiple days during that time.
Are there any guildlines hiring commitees can refer to during the Interview Service?
Yes. In order to facilitate the best possible interview experience at the Annual Meeting, APSA has put together some best practices for the hiring process.
