    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Indianapolis Public Schools.

    Interview Details

    Varies by individual. My initial hiring (I changed positions, so had to be rehired since I went from non certified to a certified position) was into a non-certified high need area. Even though I submitted all documentation (which included from other school corporations, including out of state) in a timely manner, tracked the submissions to and from IPS, they still kept losing my information. Finally, to get the interview, I contacted the Superintendents office after 3 months of waiting. I was interviewed and hired the next day. Interviewing for a certified position was handled more professionally, by different part of HR. Initially interviewed with the main HR downtown, was hired, and then interviewed with the principal's I was given. I then chose from the offers made by the individual school principals.
