An Investigation of the Resume and Employment Interview in the Hiring Process of Faculty Members.
McDowell, Earl E.
A study examined the importance of various factors of the academic resume and employment interview from the perspective of university faculty members. Subjects, 130 assistant, associate, and full professors randomly selected from the faculty of a midwestern university, completed the Revised Academic Selection Process Questionnaire. Overall, the results indicated that publications and references were the most important items on the academic resume, while communication skills, intelligence, and credibility were the most important criteria for evaluating candidates. Results also indicated specific perceptual differences between gender groups and among academic rank groups for the search committee's responsibilities regarding academic employment interviewing.
