What are your general comments?

"Overall, everything was completely stress free until my faculty interview. My interviewer asked me a lot of tough questions and I had to say "I don't know" a lot. In the end, I think he was mainly trying to see how well I could communicate, and we talked a lot about random issues - Boy Scouts, Karate, etc. However, he did try to probe how much I knew about my research, how much I remembered about my biochem classes. It was a good mix of easy going conversation and tough questions. As long as you maintain your composure and don't flip out, you will be ok." Report Response
