10 Steps For Interview Success [INFOGRAPHIC]


Summertime is in full swing. That means that many new teachers search for their first job, and many more experienced teachers look for a new job. The interview is an inevitable part of the job hunt. For many pre-service teachers, a teaching job interview is the first real job interview they have ever had. But interviews often lead to rejection. The good news is you only need one interview success.

Nowadays, numerous resources are available to help make sure the interview goes well. Unfortunately, few of them seem to be geared specifically toward teachers. Tradewind Recruitment is one company whose focus is helping teachers find jobs. They have put together a nice infographic to help guide you through the process. If you happen to be in the United Kingdom, you may want to check out their site. If you’re not in the UK, I bet you will find that there are some nice resources that may help you along in your job search anyway.

Why can’t I get a job?

Your resume is, of course, the key to getting the job interview, so before you can even get to the interview, you need a fantastic resume that shows you in your best possible light. If you aren’t getting interviews, the problem is probably with your resume. I’ve written about resumes a good bit before. If you are getting interviews and not getting job offers, the problem is probably with your interview skills.
