Familiarize yourself with some teaching/pedagogical philosophy and then use it to frame your answers during the interview.

21st Century Skills is a really hot trend right now. Of course, there's also a large backlash against the lingo of 21C right now as well. So it's hard to say where your interviewers come down on that topic. At least understanding the concept and basic tenets will help you to seem current.

The key to getting an adjunct gig is to develop a relationship with the department. Volunteer to give a seminar, to substitute lecture, to host a field trip, provide internships for students, coach students for interviewing for the hospitality industry, etc.

If you build a relationship, they are going automatically think of you when they have an adjunct need. We never interview for adjunct positions. If we have a teaching need we can't cover from our existing faculty, we call someone we already know who can do the job.

Good, you already have a relationship. Your knowledge of their program and what their educational goals are should give you a huge advantage. Volunteer to give an example lecture on a topic of their choosing. Then really prepare for it.

I wouldn't worry if you have that much experience in education per se. I have no teaching degree—AT ALL! Yet, I have taught my profession on-and-off as an adjunct professor at several colleges up in Mass and here in Florida with far less experience than that. Having specific education knowledge has never come up for me—not if your teaching your profession or a how to do it. If your going to teach the Hospitality Business, then knowledge of that is going to be far more key. Trust me. I've worked at four colleges now. My portfolio and the clients I had counted only. Of course one school was my alma mater. Not only that but I actually received letters from students thanking me profusely for gaining real world knowledge and practice that landed them a job afterwards.
