YOUR INTERVIEW COACH
- The first step if you are called for an interview is to prepare for it.
We provided that information in our Superintendent Seminar. However, if you need help with this your coach will provide pertinent information on how to prepare for it.
- First Impression is BIG – so your attire is very important. Your TCG coach will give you suggestions on wearing the right clothing and accessories.
- The coach will also give you some suggestions on the following:
- How to enter the room
- What to do with your hands
- Eye contact
- How to end the interview
- How to follow-up on an interview
- Checking your FB page
- Making sure you answer the questions asked
- Some silent tips to quickly put together a complete answer – for those questions that have two or three parts to it.
The most important part of this seminar is experiencing an impromptu interview with your coach. Your coach will ask some of the typical questions asked during an interview along with some that may be typical for the district that has asked you to interview. The greatest part of this experience is that all TCG coaches have done searches for superintendent positions. They know questions that are asked and what kind of answers Boards want to hear. The powerful learning of this experience is for the coach to give you immediate feedback. You will also receive a list of interview questions for you to practice answering them and this experience will boost your confidence them before the interview.
The session for this mini-seminar will be a total 2-4 hours and it may be one or two sessions.
The fee is $225 payable before the first sessions.
