Check out Timothy Larson’s piece in today’s Inside Higher Ed. According to Larson, these are the four questions he hears most often from rejected job candidates at Wheaton College:
Given how eminently well qualified I am for this position, how can you possibly justify eliminating me so early in the process?
I know I was eliminated over a month ago, so why have you not had the decency to tell me so?
How in the world can you expect someone applying for an entry-level position to already have a handful of research articles in major peer-reviewed journals and a book contract with a leading university press?
What did I do wrong?
