Critique you immediately after the interview?? Here's the scenario: I live in a very very small area. I have been called for and completed 3 interviews, and will do my fourth on Monday. Believe it or not, that's a lot for around here. I have been told by two that I got "2nd place" (yes, they literally said that. Talk about a knife to the heart) and I interviewed really well. One P even went as far as asking me to please keep an eye out for further job openings because they would really like to work with me. Bittersweet, but at least I know that I come across well in interviews. So my 3rd interview is the one that I came away from feeling dumbfounded. First off, I felt the questions the entire interview were very similar and therefore I was giving similar answers. They did not even ask about my teaching philosophy or for me to even tell them about myself! The P is new so maybe this is the reason? Ok, to the real point-- I felt like the interview went decent-- definitely not as well as the first two, but not bad. At the end of the interview, he stood up and shook my hand. As we were standing there, and in front of the panel, he began to critique my interview! He said that they would be making decisions by the end of the day but then began to tell me that I should have said this and that differently and a few other things. I'm pretty sure I stood there with my mouth open in disbelief. He also told me I had "a good head on my shoulders" (making me feel like a child) and I should keep interviewing. Is this just weird to me? It made me really uncomfortable and discouraged. Now, I am facing this interview Monday somewhat bumfuzzled from being told my responses were incorrect!
