The most common tips:
• Do some research on the institution and the people who will be interviewing you.
• Practice your job talk and do mock interviews in front of a variety of audiences.
• Get the schedule for your campus visit in advance and find out with whom you will be meeting, so you'll know what to expect.
• Bring extra copies of your CV, cover letter, dissertation abstract, statements of teaching philosophy and research interests, syllabi, and presentation materials and carry them with you on the plane in case your baggage is lost.
• Smile and be yourself, but remember to act and dress appropriately throughout your entire visit.Links to previous discussions:Help! I have my first campus interview
