    Interview

    I worked primarily with acoustics and noise control, with my emphasis being in active noise and vibration control. I worked with the aircraft fuselage and all of the vibrations and noises created in there and limiting their effects on the cockpit. Of course, automobile engines are also very noisy being so close to the driver. I also worked with compressors. I worked with really small compressors to really big compressors. I worked on small refrigeration units using passive and active control techniques. You�d be surprised at how big an issue refrigerator noise is overseas, in Europe and Asia with their tight living conditions. I also worked with huge engine compressors of up to sixty horsepower. That�s really big for a university, you know. I also worked with reciprocating compressors, screw compressors, scroll compressors, and rotary compressors.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Xavier University (Cincinnati, OH (US)).

    Interview

    The process was professional and I met with people from a number of different areas. The interview was a panel interview with the search committee. I also met with representatives from academic affairs. The interview was a two step process. I met with the search committee and my supervisor for the first interview. I also went to lunch with a group from the University. The second interview involved a meeting individually with my supervisor and two faculty members. For the most part they want to know that you understand the mission of the University and that you are student centered. I was applying for a position that involved a lot of interaction with students, families, faculty, and staff.
