What is the interview process?

Once you send your résumé to a potential employer and they reach out to you, you may ask when, where and how long the interview will be. You should also ask what you should be prepared for. Many schools hold interviews during school days and incorporate live classrooms into interviews. Others might expect more formal interviews with a few representatives from the school.

 

Since schools are so thorough, you may have both types of interview on different days. A lot of interviewing processes have multiple stages for the candidate to prove themselves.

How can I prepare for my interview?

Use a Check List like the one below:

  • Have appropriate formal attire washed and ironed.
  • Get directions and make sure to account for traffic at the time of interview.
  • Use sample interview questions about your profession. Write down answers on notecards to study. If you’re interviewing for the first time, find popular questions for your field by searching online.
  • Research the school or organization you’re applying to. Find out some current happenings if you can and show interest.
  • Bring some ideas from previous experiences. Talk about implementing a new routine or technology and be able to explain why.
  • Organize a portfolio online. Especially for teachers, interviewees have been expected to bring binders of sample work to an interview. Now, interviewers don’t have all that time, so they prefer a simple display on an iPad or projector they can scroll through during the interview. It also helps to organize your files so you can quickly pull something up if it relates to a question being asked.
  • Practice mock interviewing with someone. Use the sample questions you’ve found and Practice, practice, practice.
  • Finally, be sure to get a good night of sleep in before your interview.
