Irving Independent School District Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Bilingual Teacher Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Irving Independent School District in May 2011.
Interview Details – Interviewed at a job fair. Initiated by an introduction from the office manager at the teacher certification school I went to with a principal she knew. Personal introduction was crucial to getting the interview as I skipped ahead of the rest of the applicants due to the introduction. I interviewed on the spot with the principal, and was questioned briefly by both assistant principals. I was immediately told I got the job. Took 2 months to get the contract signed at the admin office, but communication with the principal was regular. Advice to getting hired is know someone, without an in you are just one of hundreds of faceless applicants.
