I will be applying to tenure-track assistant professor jobs this coming cycle and would like to know what are common pitfalls or things you wish you knew during the interview cycle.
Specifically, I'm interested in strategies or advice regarding 'soft skills' e.g.
- handling adversarial questions publicly during a job talk
- what type of qualities of 'image' should you project during the interview
- how to best prepare for meeting with professors in your area vs. out of area vs. student meeting
- anything else you wish you knew
