Got a job interview? Don't screw it up!

Claire Potter over at Inside Higher Ed has some great tips to be sure you don't blow your job interview. It's written with historians and conference interviews in mind, but is widely applicable. For instance, it behooves you to know what your dissertation is about and be able to speak eloquently, confidently, and concisely about it. A no-brainer, right? Surprisingly, this actually takes some thought and practice PRIOR to your interview to get right.
