Typical Expectations of an Interviewing Team

What do we expect from new teachers when they are asked to interview?

  • Be on time
  • Dress appropriately as a professional
  • Remain calm
  • Have a current resume that is organized and complete
  • Make sure that you have a working telephone number and it is clearly indicated
  • If you are being interviewed in a school take a look around as you enter as you may want to use an observation during the interview
  • If you have other information that the team requested or you chose to bring, ensure that your name is on it and it is well organized
  • Have a few key points about yourself ready to insert during the interview
  • Be yourself and let the team get to know you
  • It is okay to have a few notes to refer to
  • Helpful sometimes to bring a pen and paper into the interview
