    Has anyone else run into this... Not calling it an interview? The administrator is a coach, so maybe he just talks casually, but it seems weird to me still...

    So how does that 'talk' feel? Do you take your resume, portfolio, etc with you?

    Yes, he called me after I emailed the head principal with my resume regarding a job posting they had up, and he referenced seeing the resume in the call, but no specifics mentioning a job at all! It's tomorrow so I'll let you all know then......

    Prepare for an interview but it sounds like it could be very informal - don't let that throw you off guard :)

    My interview on Tuesday was so we could "talk about my credentials". It was just with the P. I was invited back for a panel interview on the spot, which is tomorrow morning.
    It was still an interview.

    I call all my interviews "opportunities".

    Good luck! Definitely treat it like an interview, even if it is more informal. :)

    I would treat it as an interview, so dress professionally and bring whatever you would take on an interview.

    So I arrive at the interview 10 minutes early, and end up having to sit for 50 minutes because they are running behind (!!!). It was definitely an interview, the department chair was there also. Glad I was prepared, and that I didn't plan for anything afterwards since it went so late! The next person interviewing even showed up while I was waiting... Awkward...

    Two of my interviews last week were an hour late. It does terrible things to your nerves!

    That is an awkward feeling! That happened to me on an interview back in May. I showed up a few minutes early, but the person before me ran late. They had the conference room door slightly open and I could hear part of her interview. Thankfully, I was able to figure out that the person before me was there for a different position that I was. :lol:

    I think it went fine, it was just very strange with the circumstances. The questions were normal.
