    Science Teacher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interviewer was very efficient. We talked briefly about my educational background (fresh out of a science teacher prep program in college) and experience. I'd brought sample lesson plans with me but the interviewer didn't really look at any of my hard copies. The interviewer threw me a couple of scenarios and asked how I'd respond.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    200-300 applicants for every position. Had to jump through hoops. Application, resume, professional references, fingerprints, background check. Online application. The usual. Then wait for interview. NO bites. I had to call in a favor with an old contact to get my one and only interview. The interview was in-person with an assistant principal. It took weeks. Get started early. Good luck.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Seminole County Public Schools in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had to jump through so many hoops to get this job! Unbelievable amount of paperwork prior to submitting the application. Then you apply for a job, and the principal gets your resume and decides who they want to interview. They DON'T see your cover letter or anything else. Ugh. I got my job by visiting the school on my own--even though I wasn't supposed to.
