(x5)
  • Agreed - thank you, Kyla. Does this mean, however, that other applicants will not have to book a flight on short notice to NWSA? Planned to go just for Pomona. :)
  • Contacted for Skype interview (11/3)
  • Were you all contacted by phone or email? I'm curious if my one missed call today was my missed interview opportunity ;)
  • Is there no news on NWSA interviews (only Skype interviews)?
  • Contacted for NWSA interview via email 11/1
  • Dear candidates, I am writing to confirm that we have now contacted everyone on our initial list of interviewees, which is the only information I can share regarding our current process. I apologize for not writing sooner. I wish I had a job for everyone, and time to write everyone back thanking you for all of your hard work. I will try to check back in here and update as the search progresses. Obviously for legal reasons we will need to alert candidates of news before anyone else. Thank you for your understanding and I wish you all the warmest and best of luck in this job season. You all deserve jobs. Best wishes, KWT
  • Thank you, Kyla x 2 (I really appreciate your note).
