Anyone have word on this one? I was one of the candidates who went to campus last year. Reading this discussion made me want to add my two cents for people applying now, which I will preface by saying that almost everyone I met at Rhodes was really amazing and kind, and I would have taken the job had it been offered because of that and the fact that the students were great and challenging.
In a one-on-one conversation, this person also shared information about a former faculty member that I considered somewhat inappropriate. At any rate, I would say: Seems like there were a lot of good people who interviewed last year and no one got it.
Nov 1 Are you kidding me?
Also -- the review begins in 3 days. Does this seem awfully strange to anyone else? These people are absolutely nuts. I know a total of four people including myself who were interviewed for their original position, any one of whom would have been excellent.
But departments in small liberal arts college are small and Creative writing wiki 2011 only takes one person to be dissatisfied with a candidate to cause the committee to pass on that candidate, however excellent he or she would be.
Some are, but not most. Many are just spousal hires attached to the lucky few who got selected during the just-finished job season, or the one from the year before, etc.

Anyone here apply for the visiting post? November 1, Acknowledgment received: MLA or phone interview scheduled: Or did the chair call you?
Rejection after MLA or phone interview: Was one of the people who had a campus interview. Got a letter today saying that they decided not to make an offer to anyone. Does anyone know what happened here? I was pretty psyched about this position and really liked the people and the school Pretty sad for us.
Could you quote the language in the letter you received? There was some discussion previous years on the Wiki about the academic culture at Rhodes. You might be able to look at previous job seasons and get some insight if you are that invested. I see they reopened the search. Any more phone interviews or new campus visits scheduled or offers made?
Did you find out what happened with the original candidates, or was it the department? Other people might very well be nosier, but I feel like asking those questions in that situation is poor form.
And as a poet, I do care about form. No idea what happened with the campus interviews. Happy, surprised, but very curious. Did they say if how many more people they were interviewing by phone?The Muppets is the Muppets' seventh feature film, released in The script was written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, the writer-director team behind the film Forgetting Sarah Marshall; and was directed by James Bobin, co-creator of the HBO series Flight of the Conchords.
