At Los Rios, our interview panels are often composed of a large group of people who ask each candidate the same set of standardized questions. Though this might feel impersonal, the process is designed to make sure each interviewee is treated equally.

Interview Structure

Interviews generally follow the same structure:


After the Interview

After the interview, committee members independently and confidentially rank candidates in order of preference before any discussion. The committee chair and equity representative score the rankings to determine the composite top candidates.

Strengths and weaknesses of each finalist are discussed and the top three candidates are identified and referred to the appropriate administrator(s). Depending on the position, top candidates may be invited to a second interview. A candidate's references will be checked before they are offered a job at Los Rios.
