    Hey guys,

    Need some advice.

    What to wear to a 2nd interview?

    What to expect at this interview (P said it would be brief)?

    Thanks!:confused:

    Assuming you probably wore a suit or something similar to the first interview, I would wear black pants and a nice shirt or some other outfit that I would normally wear to teach in. I don't have much experience with 2nd interviews, but in my experience it is usually with different people and they will ask you the same questions as before or similar questions. I don't know if it's the same interviewer.

    It is the same interviewer. First interview was with P, AP and Counselor. I wore a skirt and a nice blouse. So, pants tomorrow?

    I wore a suit (the same suit) and just changed the shirt underneath. My second interview was - do you want the job? Okay then sign here to initiate your transfer.

    I'd wear a nice outfit, like black pants and a nice top. Good luck! When is the interview?

    I wore a nice pair of blank pants and a blouse to mine. I was over dressed compared to the others there but I thought that it was the way to go even though I was sweating miserably! I wore a suit to the first one with just the P.

    2nd interview had P again with 2 of the teachers - asking same or similar questions and it was brief.

    So, you're 2nd interview is usually more brief than the first? I also didn't know that you could dress down a little for the second time around. I have a 2nd round interview next week and I am not sure what to expect. Advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I wore a blue suit to the job fair. But when I was called for an interview, I wore a white blouse, black skirt, and a black patent leather low-heeled sling back shoe.

    Job Offer today!! I of course accepted it:) I will be changing districts (but to a much nicer and closer one). The school is awesome and I felt very comfortable with the P and AP. Salary will be a little bit more:)

    Thanks for the wonderful and encouraging advice out there!

    As for my wardrobe....I wore a black skirt and a nice white blouse and black nice sandals. I felt a little on the casual side but it is a teaching outfit that I have worn and I noticed that they were casually dressed at interview #1.

    Best of luck to all out there still looking!

    I usually wear a skirt that has large flowers with pleats and a chocolate brown tweed 3/4 jacket with brown patent leather heals. It looks real nice and classy on.

    Good Luck!!!
