This morning I received a call at my home (about twenty minutes after I left) telling me that CC5 (or is it CC6?) wants to do a phone interview on Thursday. They called my cell phone at 12:40 and left the same message.
Since I was at work all day, I got the cell message first. I called immediately (2:50) and got no answer. I did leave a message. Then I called again at 3:20 and at 4. No one was there.
So I guess I will call again in the morning.
I am thrilled about the interview. I would like to know which position it is though. I applied for three at that school and (as far as I can tell) they are very different.
If it is position 1, most likely, they’ve had my stuff for 5 weeks. That’s actually moving pretty fast. If it is position 3, I’ll faint. Because they have only had my stuff for 5 days. Which means that it is for position 1. Which means I need to review the Mexican-American reading list.
One weird thing: They asked for an academic rÃ©sumÃ©. I gave them a CV. I hadn’t realized that. Oh well. I guess they liked it anyway.
Unfortunately I also said I could brush up on my Spanish skills, which I certainly could. I learn very fast and Rice has a course for this starting next month. But my skills are very rusty. I can… read comments on Facebook and that is about it right now. However, I do believe I could brush up before next fall and be able to teach a book that is in Spanish, if they wanted that.
Update: I think it is actually CC5. I work at CC1. I did work at CC2. I applied at CC3 and CC4. This is CC5. It’s just hard to read. Maybe I’ll call it CC6 anyway.
