- I have an interview scheduled at the AHA in January.
- [18 Dec] Received generic rejection by email.
- I interviewed with them at the AHA and recently was told that I did not make the list of three scheduled to visit campus. Note: The in person interview process included submitting more supporting materials that included writing a two page response to the "Mission Statement" which states that faith and reason are compatible. To me, this was odd because the Friar/President of the University also reviews this statement and is apparently involved in making the final decision on hiring. This entire process was weird and in my opinion agreeing to such a statement seems to impinge upon one's academic freedom.
- faith statements are pretty common at religious universities. It's part of the process when you apply to jobs at them, but it is unusual that PC didn't make it clear up front they expected this
- Some serious struggles over diversity at Providence and this statement (at least the way it is constructed and the role it plays in the hiring process) have been debated in the media over the last few years google former Providence professor Anthony Esolen controversy.

- [20 Nov] Any word on this one?
- [30 Nov] Has anyone been contacted about this search?
- [18 Dec] phone interview, invitation extended to visit campus.
- Any word? Or the inside hire has been selected?
- Offer made and accepted
- Inside hire selected: https://mobile.twitter.com/jeremyneely/status/972209363791294464
- Some "tells" for an inside hire: 1) Job description exactly matches a current instructor's teaching load. 2) You botch the phone interview and get invited on campus anyway. 3) The Dean skips the interview appointment because the "secretary made the appointment for the wrong day."
- For the record, I think they made the right decision, as the hire is much better qualified than I am, but running a sham search shakes my faith in humanity. Good experience, I guess. And free food!
- --Knowing some people who interviewed for this position, no, this was not the most qualified hire. The department ran a sham search through a rigged, bankrupted process.
