So tomorrow I have an interview for a foreign language teaching job in Chicago. It's my second interview in 2 weeks. The last one I thought went really well, and one of the interviewers walked me out and made it sound like I had the job... 3 days later I got a form rejection letter. Not really sure what happened, maybe someone higher up already had a person in mind? I have re-analyzed my answers, and all I can think of is that maybe I sounded over-rehearsed, since it was my first ever teaching interview and I had practiced all of the questions. So any general tips for how to nail this one? I really really really want this to go well, since despite sending in 30+ other applications for open positions, I haven't gotten any other calls. Right now I've got: -Portfolio with relevant docs and a few interesting lesson/unit plans -Prepared answers to 50+ common interview questions -Researched the school/district in great detail If anyone has any general tips about how to sound prepared (but not scripted), be relaxed, follow up appropriately etc, I would really appreciate it. I would REALLY love this job.
