I was asked by my boss if I wanted to help her interview some people for our afterschool program. I of course said YES! Mainly, I have always wanted to see how they do things, what they look at, what they say when you leave, etc. So, here are some tips: 1) Don't ramble. My boss noted how one of the people we interviewed just kept rambling and rambling. She said, "nope" to that one. 2) Have some good questions to ask us when we ask "if you have any questions". And we want good questions. I was so looking forward to talking about our program and sharing what we've been doing. Not one of the people we interviewed asked any good questions. They all said something similar at the end, "you pretty much answered my questions." uh, really? That means you didn't really try to come up with any. While the interview is short, when I interviewed for this job, I had about 10 questions that I asked. Because I genuinely was interested in how this program worked, what it entailed, how supplies would work, prep time, etc. I was now interviewing THEM! So I wasn't impressed with any of them because of that. I said nope to all of them. 3) Bring SOME sort of passion. One women seemed very... boring. Just not really into this job. Nope to that one. One more tip from me that I do. Whenever I answer interview questions, I bring in what I've done in the past. I talk about specific incidents, stories, activities that I've personally done. I don't give text book responses. FYI: In this past year alone, I have received 4 job offers. Turned two down. Accepted the other two.
