Do You Have an "On Campus Visit?"

I hope that many of my readers on the academic job market get calls this week inviting them for an "on campus" interview.   Over at gradhacker, Julie Platt has some good advice for those who will be traveling to colleges and universities for job interviews over the course of the next month or so.  I have listed her main points below, but read the entire post to see how she develops them.

1.  Be prepared to be "on" all the time.

2.  Be prepared to talk to the "bigwigs."

3.  Be prepared to talk about everything and anything, especially during the job talk.
