Very Easy Interview

Assistant Lecturer Interview

Assistant Lecturer
Melbourne (Australia)

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Monash University in January 2008.

Interview Details It was an informal discussion with the person who looked after all of the tutors at Monash. She was interested to learn why I wanted to be a tutor, what experience I had and those sorts of issues. Technical ability did not come into nor did understanding of economics. She was not even interested in one's ability to control a class room full of rowdy students.

Interview Question – Who was your favourite tutor and why?   View Answer
