How (not) to be a job applicant

These video clips were recorded at the Pecans Workshop in April 2007. Many thanks to Rosemary Auchmuty, Joanne Conaghan, Didi Herman and Rosemary Hunter for giving permission for these clips to be published on this website.

The clips are in Flash format. If you do not have this installed on your computer, you will be prompted to install this plug-in. Please note that the clips open in a new window. These are large files, and may take a while to download and begin so please be patient...

Clip 1: How (not) to be a job applicant [Applicant 1]

Clip 2: How (not) to be a job applicant [Applicant 2]

Clip 3: Panel Deliberations

In many respects, these clips are 'just for fun' but it's important to note that many of the errors made by the two applicants are based on their extensive experience of interviewing candidates for academic jobs!
